I am not angry at Koch for releasing a version of this movie without English audio, or subtitles. I am simply airing my disappointment that pre-release reports, which suggested that it would have English audio or subs, are innaccurate. I am also attempting to warn English-speakers here, what to expect.
The database here claims that the DVD has Italian audio, so that needs correcting. And even Amazon.de from whom I bought the DVD still believe it has an Italian soundtrack.
So where does all this pre-release information come from ? Do people just make it up, or did Koch make an announcement that they were going to supply Italian and English tracks, and have now reneged on the deal ?
I note on the SW board someone is reporting a rumour that there will be ‘a 2-DVD-Set of “Inka” including the alternate Italian version + subtitles’. Don’t you just love rumours ?
My point is that no more will I rely on rumours, hearsay or speculation. Nor will I believe Amazon.de. Nor will I imagine that everything Koch releases will have some sort of English audio or subs just because they’ve done a few like that recently.
In future they don’t get my money till someone here, or on some other SW web board, swears a blood oath that they have a copy of whatever film is under discussion, and can confirm exactly what audio or subs exist.
I’m perfectly calm. But they can still kiss my ass, because I hate being lied to.
