    I read enough for this

    It's the first subtitle track in the list of 10 at the bottom. 2 kanji "Eigo" and then 3 characters common to all the tracks which I assume means "translation" or something similar

    Translation of the specs box (well, near as i can

    First box-(video)

    16:9 Vista Size (squeeze) (Japanese phrasing for 1.85:1, assuming it's referring to the TV size and not the film aspect ratio, "squeeze" meaning anamorphic. Dreams was shot Super35(spit), and the home video widescreen releases have been aroud 2.1:1. Japan is a very OAR country, so I'm assuming this is not an issue

    Second Box- (audio)

    1 audio track- Japanese (Nihongo)-Dolby Surround

    Third Box- (subtitles)

    10 tracks-

    1-English (Eigo)
    2-French (Furansu)
    3-Spanish (Supain)
    4-Portugese (Poretogare)
    5-Japanese (Nihongo)
    6-Chinese (assuming Mandarin, it's just the kanji for "China")
    7-Thai (Tai)
    8- Hangule??????? That's what the kana says, Indonesia maybe?
    9-Japanese and something else, maybe closed captions?

    I love AK but I'm not familiar with this movie. Is it worth picking up?

    Given that we're excited about it, yes I would say it's worth getting. If you love Kurosawa-sensei you'll love this. It also features Martin Scorsese playing Vincent VanGogh [​IMG]
