A DVD of Altman's Short Cuts is available in Germany and can be obtained from Amazon.de via the following link:

http://www.amazon.de....428174-5331748

However, the product details show that the dialogue is apparently a German dubbing. Can anyone confirm this?

...according to the dvd-mann site the disc does indeed sport only a German-dubbed soundtrack, no English... but then, of course you know that the *a*v*e*r*a*g*e* German moviegoer would have to be forced at gunpoint to watch a movie in the original language - be that English, French, Japanese, whatever...

"...the *a*v*e*r*a*g*e* German moviegoer..."

Tanja: read my lips: ich sagte der *d*u*r*c*h*s*c*h*n*i*t*t*l*i*c*h*e* deutsche Kinobesucher... und bleibe dabei (aus persoenlicher Erfahrung, jawohl!)...

uebrigens: dasselbe gilt fuer den *d*u*r*c*h*s*c*h*n*i*t*t*l*i*c*h*e*n* franzoesischen (aus persoenlicher Erfahrung, jawohl!), italienischen (wieder aus persoenlicher Erfahrung, jawohl!) und - moeglicherweise, da bin ich mir nicht sicher - spanischen Kinobesucher: sie alle wollen einen Film nur in der jeweiligen (eigenen) Landessprache sehen...

und die amis nicht?

...well, with the exception of, perhaps, anime and, again perhaps, martial arts movies(*), by and large the answer is NO - "foreign" (i.e. non-American, of course - but also non-British, non Australian, non-New Zealand, and non-English-language Canadian) movies are (almost) always shown WITH SUBTITLES, except where an 'English-language version' is made BY THE ORIGINAL MAKERS OF THE MOVIE (for instance: the German movie "Anatomie"/"Anatomy" - even the original German DVD of that original German movie has an optional English soundtrack) ...

...note that the Dutch, 'Flemish'-speaking Belgians, Danes, Swedes, Norwegians, Finns do NOT dub movies - with the exception, of course, of children's feature cartoons (e.g. "The Lion King")...

(*)...of course, real, 'serious' fans of such movies will always want to watch the original version, not a dubbed one...
