Flashback Subtitles English PATCHED
One aspect of the new Star Wars show Andor might have you puzzled: where are the Kenari subtitles? In flashbacks scattered across the first three episodes, we see Cassian's childhood on his home planet of Kenari. English (or, in Star Wars lingo, Basic) isn't spoken on Kenari, but there are no subtitles to explain what characters are saying. Not even turning the subtitles feature on in Disney Plus will reveal what the Kenari words mean.
Flashback subtitles English
The choice not to include subtitles in the flashbacks is an intentional one, then, but it's not clear at the moment why that decision has been made. The easiest explanation is that it's all part of showing just how different Kenari's culture is to Ferrix, the planet Cassian lives on as an adult. It's obvious that being taken from Kenari as a child would have been quite the culture shock for the young boy. Plus, the storyline running through the flashbacks is easy to follow without understanding exactly what the kids are saying to each other.
While most of the tribe heads back to their village after one of them is shot by a surviving crew member, Kassa stays to investigate the ship himself, where he is found by Clem and Maarva Andor, a pair of scavengers and his future adoptive parents, who take him in when a Republic ship comes into orbit, showing that the flashbacks are taking place prior to the formation of the Empire.
This is not a new idea, either, as showrunners have chosen to omit subtitles for languages other than English, even in the case of real-world languages such as Spanish in Dexter. For viewers who spoke Spanish, they could understand, but in the instance where this is relevant to the case of Andor, you can infer what they are saying due to the context around them.
Watching the Old man on disney plus through my apple tv. During the flashback scenes there are a lot of scenes where the characters talk in a foreign language but no subtitles show what they are saying I tried turning on English CC subtitles and still nothing. The subtitles just says "foreign language". We have to resort to changing to Audio description where a narrator explains what is being said.
I've just checked E4 again and it looks like subtitles have been sorted; they're not automatically displayed during those scenes where all dialogue is not in English (Dari? Pashto?), but do show when English CC is selected. Think I'll re-watch these scenes so I actually understand what was going on; and here's hoping they're present on future episodes (which day do they get released?)
I thought it was a setting on my Apple TV. I could get the subtitles by going and selecting English CC, but then I'd also get them for all the English spoken bits (and the 'Moody Music plays' 'Keyboard clacking'). I just toggled them on and off for the flashback bits, but it was annoying.

In this context, the film confronts a number of taboo issues, including male infertility. Ultimately, Hawa brands Kader as "an infertile man, incapable of tenderness." The film also addresses the subject of female sexuality. While Hawa and Kader have grown emotionally isolated, Hawa seeks enjoyment by watching a comedy program on television while Kader, reacting with scorn, chooses not to join her. Hawa further seizes control of her pleasure by fantasizing about her dance instructor and masturbating. Through a flashback at the end of the film, we see Hawa as she climaxes, juxtaposed with Kader, angry and alone in his taxi, struggling to breathe with heart pain.

Multiple languages with English subtitles.This remarkably timely, eye-opening look at an all-too-real issue charts the death-defying struggle of African migrants as they risk everything to start a new life in Europe. Ayiva (first time actor Koudous Seihon in a revelatory performance) and Abas (Sy) are close friends from Burkina Faso determined to make it to Italy in order to find work and provide for their families back home.

Aki Kaurismäki (France/Finland 2011) 93 min. 35MM. With André Wilms, Kati Outinen, Blondin Miguel. French with English subtitles.In this warmhearted portrait of the French harbor city that gives the film its name, fate throws young African refugee Idrissa (Miguel) into the path of Marcel Marx (Wilms), a well-spoken bohemian who works as a shoeshiner. With innate optimism and the unwavering support of his community, Marcel stands up to officials doggedly pursuing the boy for deportation. A political fairy tale that exists somewhere between the reality of contemporary France and the classic cinema of Jean-Pierre Melville and Marcel Carné, Le Havre is a charming, deadpan delight.
The plentiful flashbacks soon come into play, and because many revelations are introduced early on, a couple can be leaked here, without ruining anything: Sookee is a former pickpocket and thief, the Count is a swindler, and they are about to hatch a devious scheme to relieve someone of their wealth.
The life and times of a Danish drug dealer in trouble with dangerous colleagues. The action is horrific at times, but it adds up to a vigorous message about the hazards of a criminal life. In Danish, with subtitles
Feeling himself a perpetual outsider because of his small stature and moody temperament, a law-office assistant strikes up emotionally charged relationships with an aging opera singer and a young circus performer. Thual's sensitive acting and Le Moine's imaginative directing don't quite manage to steer this Belgian melodrama around pitfalls of sentimentality and sensationalism. In French with English subtitles
This omnibus-style film traces the fictional history of a superbly crafted violin, and the mystery attached to it, as it passes from 17th-century Italy to China during the Cultural Revolution, with stops in Austria and England along the way. Girard invests each episode of this production with dramatic credibility and emotional strength. In four languages, with English subtitles when appropriate. *** Lushly scored, unusual, leisurely paced, rewarding, haunting.
The main character of this French drama is a young woman who has far more interest in sex than her celibate boyfriend does. More cautionary than titillating. Contains extremely graphic sexual activity, some of it deliberately disturbing. In French with English subtitles
Assailed by poverty and unemployment, a Belgian teenager makes a series of desperate efforts to get a regular job, hoping for a normal life. This hard-edged drama has less urgency than "La Promesse," the brilliant 1996 feature by the Dardenne brothers, but it carries a strong emotional charge along with its valuable reminder of the suffering that youngsters may undergo when a heedless society overlooks their needs. In French with English subtitles
The title character is a 13-year-old girl whose 27-year-old mother is trying to raise her right, but keeps running into emotional and psychological problems. Sensitive acting and skillful directing make the drama quietly touching despite some harrowing moments. In Flemish with English subtitles.
Amazingly creative filmmaking propels this anything-goes tale of a young woman who has just 20 minutes to save her boyfriend's life by raising a huge amount of cash. Tykwer's style gives the movie an explosive energy that never quits, marking him as the most ingenious new talent to hail from Germany in ages. Contains violent action. In German with English subtitles **** Nonstop, full of surprises, fun, philosophical.
A real-estate agent, a Paris apartment, and a shifting web of romantic feelings spark this lighthearted comedy-drama. The results are diverting at times, but have none of the interest or resonance of Resnais classics like "Night and Fog" or "Last Year at Marienbad." In French with English subtitles
Reissue of a minor classic of Polish cinema from 1965, restored to its full length. Stories grow out of other stories during the frequently dreamlike experiences of an 18th-century military officer who enters a series of fantastic adventures after finding a mysterious old book. In Polish with subtitles
A savvy businesswoman gets a crush on a man who's wildly different in age and social status, with emotionally complicated results. Huppert remains an exceptionally gifted actress, and few directors surpass Jacquot's deep interest in exploring female characters. This rather perfunctory French drama never quite catches fire.
