My husband, who has a taste for the vampire genre, rented a random movie off of Netflix that involved Swedish vampires: Let the Right One In. After spending a week in Stockholm 2 years ago, he’s taking quite a liking to the Swedish culture.
It’s a weird drama, and m o v e s r e a l l y s l o w, so make sure you’re drinking some sort of caffeinated beverage while watching it. Although it was filmed in Sweden, I found it odd they were speaking in English (English is spoken there as well). It was then that I realized the movie was overdubbed.
I was offended.
I don’t think I’ve ever watched an overdubbed film. I’m all about subtitles and keeping the voices with their proper character, as the director would have seen it. I would have rather watched it with English subtitles. It really bothered me. I almost want to watch it again with subtitles, but I’m not sure if I could….once was enough.
