if only English
no English no subtitles that is bad because it looks both informative and funny if anyone knows of a such a version or the producers would like to issue one i would be more than happy i find many Germany movies too have a good sense of humor and i did so enjoy watching this movie it deals with real history so not to have access to English and a wide world audience is a great mistake from what i could make out the actors were very good the escaping dog was very funny their facial expressions made up for the lack of English the world of media has no boundaries any more i like french comedy too its a shame we all can not settle difference with a laugh a smile and a hand shake
