watch out for bad translations

"Please forgive her for being a Marxist, she just doesn't know better." was not the line in the film. the overdubbed story was that the little boy rejected the little girl for retaining her illusions about Castro. the guy then goes to the (now crying) little girl and tells her she shouldn't keep her illusions about Castro.

see it with a good translation....if you liked Woody Allens' 'What's Up Tiger Lilly', Dialectics is much funnier. though the jokes mostly are in line with leftists disillusionment with state socialism, if one isn't familiar with that line of thinking the jokes will seem very obscure....there definitely should be more 'detourned' films of this manner.
