Region 1 DVD is not dubbed in English
on 13 June 2017
Sea Inside [DVD]  [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
This review refers to the Region 1 DVD (see product link above). I purchased this particular version of the film solely because the product description mentions that it's dubbed in English. Unfortunately this is not the case. Both the feature film and the bonus material (director's commentary and a lengthy making of featurette) have Spanish audio only. English subtitles are available for the film and the making of featurette, not for the director's commentary. Unless I haven't discovered them yet? Had I known that I'll have to settle for subtitles, I would have bought the Region 2 product. Disappointing this.
However, the film itself is beautifully written and acted. It tells the true story of a Spanish fisherman, Ramon Sampedro, who, left quadriplegic after a diving accident, fought a decades long battle for the right to die. Javier Bardem is amazing as Sampedro, giving him a warmth that makes you understand how this man could have had such an impact on the people around him as he did. No matter where you stand on the controversial issues addressed, this is a compelling film to watch for anybody.
Edit: When contacted regarding the nonexistent English dubbed audio track, the seller immediately refunded and apologized. Apparently the problem with the misinformation regarding the language is a problem with the product / packing thereof. The back cover clearly mentions English in the languages section. If this refers to subtitles only, this is not made sufficiently clear.
