Ten Canoes: Now in English

As Sameer revealed the other day - and after I had given Ten Canoes a glowing podcast review based in part on its daring not to use subtitles - the proper, director-approved version of the film should, in fact, have subtitles for all the Aboriginal dialogue. The version shown earlier this weekend was an erroneous print.

So, never one to miss an opportunity to double their money on tickets (**cough** Borat **cough**), the Toronto International Film Festival has scheduled a special repeat screening for Ten Canoes this Tuesday night at the Cumberland. If you have a ticket stub for the Thursday screening, you can turn it in at the box office for a free ticket (pending availability). And if you don't, you can buy a ticket at the box office starting today.

I remain firm in belief that Ten Canoes worked strongly without subtitles, but given the potential PR fracas kicked up by having director Rolf de Heer in Toronto to present an improperly-titled film, I can understand why TIFF is covering all its bases.
