as i said i´ll go for the german, as there isn´t just portog. on it but german too

but i think most of the people watch english or any language they understand, so i think the answer would / was interessting to more people than just me.
I live in Finland and here we don't dub anything, but I'm also very lucky to have two german TV-channels available...Perhaps because you are so used to it, you actually understand how GREAT IT SOUNDS.

Actually It's fun to compare same TV-series from finnish and german channels, without and with dubbing. With german dubbing the actors' voices are so alike and that lip/voice sync is just UNBELIEVABLE. Everything just seems come to life!

It's so unfortunate that I have to read pesky subs when watching foreign programs from finnish TV. It's also regrettable that in Finland people are forced to learn English from TV-programs, because they J-U-S-T won't dub them.

It's hard to live under oppression, but I have seen the light. I'm going to learn german so that I don't ever have to watch films and other programs with those horrible foreign languages again...besides german of course.

thats why i watch series just in english ( and movies in english, or if no english sound on the dvd german). but look at other countries. to me german is quite good at syncron. (you cant´compare most of the movies with series. they are quite bad. well more than that. buffy in german. pahhh that´s ruins the hole show) look at the english syncros LOL

but that´s offtopic now.

....this is getting way off topic here since we are suppose to be discussing CITY OF GOD...however....

I agree with most of the remarks that have been pointed out.....(even the sarcasm was pretty decent)....

I own a library of quite a few French films and not a single one of them is dubbed in English (only)...and there is NO WAY I would ever want to hear J.Binoche's voice dubbed in English (unless she speaks English-"Damage")....or E.Beart, or I.Huppert, or Audrey....or...Deneuve....or whoever else......PERIOD!!

What if it was Emmanuelle Beart, dubbed with the voice of Juliette Binoche speaking English? What a spot!

Bah! CDWow is saying the r3 is now out of stock... guess I'll have to wait a few more days.

Oh well, better than a few more months, I suppose.

City of God on varmaankin hyvä leffa. Ainakin se on saanut IMDB:ssä hyvät arviot.

(This message was dubbed in finnish.)

(Couldn't resist - Stopping OT now.)

http://us.yesasia.com has it for $11.99. Shipping is a little steep unless you order $40-$45 worth of stuff though, but then it's free!
