Kapéla, we're on opposite sides of the river.
Movie quote from The Interpreter
The character Silvia Broome, a U.N. interpreter, played by Nicole Kidman says to the character Tobin Keller, a Secret Service agent, played by Sean Penn, "We're kepéla. - lt means standing on opposite sides of the river."
Silvia is from the fictional African country of Matobo and speaks the fictional language Ku which is spoken in Eastern and Southern Africa.
