In a lot of the scenes that feature simultaneous interpretation, the interpreter will begin to say something in English before it has been said in Japanese. In fact, because the verb comes at the end of a Japanese sentence, it is impossible to interpret in the manner depicted in the movie. Even the very best interpreters will be a few seconds behind the Japanese.
