As the title states correctly I have opened this thread to assemble all German films which are released on DVD in Germany and also have English subtitles or are otherwise viewable for an audience which understands the English language
Naturally, this isn't some nationalist stance, but an attempt to clarify for foreigners which DVDs of German films they can purchase, even if they don't speak the language.
Unfortunately, though the German DVD market as a whole is quite big, German films have the tendency to be released, if at all, only with German subtitles for the hearing impaired. And that's not because most of them would be licensed to foreign distributors, but more often producers seem to think them unnecessary. Well, as we all know big money couldn't be made, but there are some companies that aknowledge the existence of movielovers who aren't interested merely in Hollywood stuff and are able to operate the internet.
Maybe the ignorance for the foreign market becomes more clear when compared to countries that operate in a similar way (e.g. Japan or France). And unfortunately people don't listen to me.
Anyways, here's what I can do for you.
I have decided to list the films chronologically by year of production. The label which released the subtitled or English edition is highlighted. I have also linked to Amazon or other retailers if possible. If you have any questions, ask or send me a PM.
