Great Indie / Low budget movie,
This review is from: Buffalo 66 [DVD] (DVD)
This is Vincent Gallo's (Tetro, Funeral) directorial debut. It is a movie of fine acting, writing, and direction, and it features some truly fine cinematography. Buffalo 66 is one of the finest independent films that I have ever seen, and perhaps the most fascinating character study I have yet to see on film.
Christina Ricci provides gret performances as Layla, the odd but tenderhearted tap dancer who provides Gallo's Billy Brown with the only true love he has ever received. Ricci's performance is understated, and she relays just as much heartfelt meaning in one glance of her beautiful, dark eyes as Gallo does in his barrage of rapid-fire monologues.
There are also fine supporting performances from Ben Gazzara aka Jackie Treehorn and Angjelica Huston, as Billy's utterly dysfunctional parents, Mickey Rourke, as a sleezy bookie, Jan-Michael Vincent, as Billy's touchingly loyal friend and owner of a bowling alley.
On top of all of this, Gallo provides a wonderful performance as Billy Brown-a man who has spent so much of his life pining for love and tenderness that he doesn't know how to deal with it once it is staring him in the face.

I do not know the answer to your question.
There are Eng subtitles on every dvd i believe.
I used them recently whilst watching Michael Manns "Miami Vice"
