Wiadomość wysłana przez: Cornelius w Luty 20, 2006, 09:40:58 pm
Hi there,

Newbie calling from the Netherlands. Perhaps this is a  question that's been asked before, however I will give it a try:

I know that Test pilota Pirksa is available on DVD in Poland. I dimly recall having seen it on german television. I saw only the end of it, when Calder(name of the 'killing' robot in the dutch print) is removed by g-power and finally comes to his end. By then I realised what I was looking at.

Is there any subtitle on this DVD, like german or english?

Thanks a lot!

Cheers,

Cornelius

Welcome.

I own the Polish DVD you mentioned. Unfortunately, there are no foreign subtitles. To be more acurate: there are none subs at all ::) .

Hi Terminus,

Thank you for the answer. I was afraid there would be none. :'(
Is this DVD easy to collect? I once went to a Polish internetshop. The language was, of course, Polish. The only thing I understood was the name Pirx. Do you know if there is an internetshop where they do have an english section and where they sell this DVD? Is it expensive?

Thanks again,

Cornelius

I have seen this in Finnish TV in the late 80´s, so Finnish subtitles exist (we don´t dub films here at all, always use subtitles) but probably that wouldn´t help you....

Well I checked for such shop but haven't found any. In Poland it costs 19 zloty, which equals to about 7$. Plus shipping, it would bite about 9-10$ off.

And in cinema...nothing dubbed. Perhaps because we have 2 official languages...at least people learn English ;-)

Well we use subs in cinema as well, but I've never seen them on TV. I guess it wouldn't work for us, because not everyone could read it from the screen - take some older people for instance, they cannot see the small letters. What then?

On the other hand, I know that in Germany literally everything is dubbed, so I guess it's still cool to live in Poland ::)

Well...nobody is complaining...perhaps most people are not aware about other possible solutions...when nothing is dubbed, you don´t think that anything else would be possible. If you cannot see the subtitles you just cannot. If I remember correctly it is alike in Sweden.

I've been looking for this movie on DVD in the US, but I cannot seem to find it. Can anybody direct me to a site that sells the DVD?

Thanks a million, Maziek. Just ordered it from the second site. Is this film in Russian with Polish subtitles? Amazingly enough, with expedited delivery, the price still comes out to be around 16$ US.
