If the manufacturer had included subtitles in English, French and German, this, as well as the other multi-disc Kurosawa blu-ray boxes, would have been the greatest releases in the history of home theater. Too bad they kept it as local as possible. Criterion, are you reading this???

I can only agree with the citizen of Greece that the Kurosawa Blu ray editions should be released with at least english subtitles in order to accommodate foreign customers. Please take notice. The films are excellent but without English subtitles they are lost for most of the world.
It's a shame such magnificent releases of first class Japanese film makers are offered only with Japanese subtitles. The entire Kurosawa's film works are often seen on Greek state TV dedicated filmruns, along with other major film makers as Oshima and Kobayashi, all subtitled in Greek and Rashomon is among the favourite choices on many summer cinemas (i.e. Greek island or city small cinemas on terraces, without ceiling, showing mainly older first class movies for the cinefil movie-goers). It's a shame to discover we cannot buy your top quality BluRay disks due to lack of subtitles. One can't expect Greek (limited market), but at least English is a must. Please issue all your Japanese movie titles with English subtitles too, this is international target-group market you're missing! Raring: 5 for Kurosawa, 0 for lack of subtitles.
