Great film, but beware this edition,
This review is from: Dances with Wolves - Director's Cut  [Dutch Import] (Accessory)
I love this film, but due to my mind not thinking far enough ahead, I made a mistake with this one.
The description clearly states that this is a European import, and that the subtitles are Dutch. Fine I thought, I'll turn them off and just listen. The problem was that I hadn't seen this film for so long, that I'd forgotten how much of it is spoken in a native American tongue.
Don't get me wrong, you can still get the story, and most of the dialogue between the natives and others is sort of obvious by their actions and facial expressions... but, I like to know every single word that is said, and I think it's important to the film to understand how the indians feel about the incomer and the threat of the mass influx of strangers into their world.
As I say, you will get the story, it is obvious, but you can't blame the seller of this disc for you not knowing what the indians are saying.
Great film, but get English subtitles if you can't read Dutch
