    ...fascinating!... took a look at the discshop site to see if they have Swedish movies among the H'wd dreck... well, there's Ingmar Bergman's http://www.discshop.se/LIVE/shop/ds_produkt.php?DISCSHOPID=5f872903050cbef732caeb8e 3f2c9a6e&id=29513&
    ...which is an imported disc (from the UK)...
    ...then I looked at a Swedish DVD of a Swedish movie: Beck - Mannen Utan Ansikte - it has a Swedish soundtrack and Norwegian subtitles (not even Danish or Finnish ones, apparently)...
    ...what's with these people? don't they want non-Swedes(Norwegians) to see their movies?...
    ...of course, the same is true of Germans: I know of only one recent German movie (Anatomie ) where the DVD offers optional English subs (and even a - shudder! - English dub), but that was the first made-in-Germany German-language Columbia/Tristar film (not a very good one, btw) so that may be the reason why English was added...
    ...the French are quite erratic: a surprisingly large number of their DVDs of original French films offer optional English subs, and in a few cases dubs as well, but most don't... ditto for the Spaniards and Italians and Dutch (a very nice - if non-anamorphic - DVD of Karakter , the 1997 Oscar winner for Best Foreign Film, without subs in any language)...
    ...I just don't get it...

    I've read several magazine articles that go along with your theory that the practice is designed to discourage exports and protect national distribution rights, Ted.
    It's particularly infuriating when, as you say, the country of origin has a superior edition (or the only edition - like Italy's "Mediterraneo").
    France in particular is now seeing a large number of multi-disc and/or DTS special editions that do not include English subtitles, and which are being released as single-disc, non-DTS editions in other countries.
    In fact I had wanted to check the Swedish websites because I had heard a rumour that Sweden was getting a 3-Disc Director's Cut SE of "Pacte des Loups", similar to the French edition (which has no English subtitles). I thought that maybe a Swedish edition would have more subtitle options, but unfortunately the rumour was unfounded - Sweden will apparently get just a single disc edition with a trailer. Ho hum.

    KARAKTER with English subtitles apparently is available in Taiwan (as well as THE TIT AND THE MOON and HAREM SQUARE)

    ...well... as you may have guessed from my moniker, I am Dutch, so I don't need subtitles on Dutch movies... BUT... if I were a Dutch (or Swedish, Norwegian, Latvian, etc.) movie director, I'd certainly want as many people as possible to see 'my' movies, so - in an ideal world - I'd see to it that DVD releases of 'my' movies would include optional subs in - at least - English, possibly also French and Spanish, heck even German...
    ...RUSCICO have the right idea: add subs in many languages and your discs can be sold around the world - e.g. Ballad of a Soldier features English and French dubs, plus subs in Russian, English, French, German, Dutch, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, Japanese, Hebrew, Swedish, Chinese, and Arabic...
    ...Taiwan eh?... do you know the url of a DVD site there?
