So what do you want to say - do you prefer dubbing?

No, the opposite. Gah, I totally messed this up, didn't I? Okay, let me go and correct that. (Sorry, I don't know where my head is at tonight.)

I'm all for it, but could you imagine the shitstorm that would undoubtedly happen if anyone seriously suggested that? I'm sure that the vast majority of Germans would hate the idea.

Re: non-English language films

Oh, and to bring this back on topic, I also remember a Swiss sci-fi movie that was pretty good, called Cargo. Anyone seen that one?

And, yes, I'm dreaming with you, Mattlocked. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/smile.png

Well, but that's not only a problem of the people in Germany, it's a problem of what people are used to and have been used to for years and years and years. You won't be able to change a thing like this from one day to the next - and I am absolutely sure that people in other countries would react with exactly the same shitstorm if they were in a similar situation. Come on, that's not "stereotypical German"...!

There are a lot of people in Germany who watch tv shows in the orginial version, either on DVD or the internet - and let's face it, the original version here always means an English version, because yes, we all speak English soooo well. I admit it, I wouldn't understand a French or Italian movie or tv show, I'd need subtitles - and I would definitely have to get used to this.
For all of us here on the forum it would be great to have English movies and tv shows in the original version, but that's because we all speak and understand Englsh pretty well. So it's easy for us to say "Yes, let's forget about the dubbing!".

Re: non-English language films

Fine, I didn't say when the problem would be solved. After how many years
The Scandinavians are used to it and they are much better in English quite early, because imo they learn it automatically that way. That's all I wanted to say.
Of course there would be a shitstorm if you change it tomorrow, no doubt.
At least they could offer several "sound-channels", so one can choose the language.

Re: non-English language films

Mattlocked, I agree about the Scandinavians, and it's definitely worth thinking about this.
I just also wanted to stress that this "shitstorm" would definitely happen in other countries as well, it's not a German 'problem'.

Re: non-English language films

A French film, "The Wild Child" (in the original, "L'Enfant sauvage") from 1970, directed by François Truffaut. Is based on a true story about one of the most famous feral children, Victor of Aveyron who was found in the woods in 1800. The film is an account of a doctor Jean Itard who decided to care for him so as to raise him to a 'human'. Very interesting film.

Re: non-English language films

Sounds really interesting. I have read about this 'case' and several others in a book I now need to find again, which was all about these cases of children who have been raised in the wild.

Re: non-English language films

^ So I recommend you this film. Also, one of its biggest pluses is beautiful music of Vivaldi (and someone else but can't recall whose right now)

Re: non-English language films

I've watched petit Nicholas and blue is the warmest colour and I'd like to watch Napola and there was a film called stars on earth that was good
(I'm not good with languages and mainly watch subbed or dubbed films)
