Ellipse-Nelvana: Do French Subtitles exist?

#1 · Posted: 16 Aug 2015 17:24 · Edited by: Moderator
I'm trying to improve my French by watching 'Les Aventures des Tintin' (the 21 episodes) in French, but I can only find English subtitles for them.
French subtitles would be a huge help, so that I could have a better understanding of the more complex French dialogue.
Does anyone know if any of the DVD versions came with subtitles in French? [Post edited for content by moderator]
Many thanks!

Your best bet would be to look on French shopping websites. There are many editions of this series, some with subtitles, some without.

Here is an omnibus edition which can be purchased via Amazon.co.uk. A review of it indicated that it includes French sub-titles.

I don't think that that set has subtitles - can't see the review you mention, mct16, but cross-checking against the Fnac site (which has more comprehensive details) they aren't listed. As Amazon has a habit of attaching review of the same product but in different versions - as if they were all the same - you need to take special care.

I got it from a review on a French blog. This review includes caps of the DVD menus where you can choose the sound and whether or not to have sub-titles ("sous-titres").
