All three do have english subtitles, and the last two have multilingual options. I highly highly recommend all five films! Enjoy! 3nodding

Also that dub rule sounds weird. Unless it's a voice-over thing that exists like Sans soleil I just find it utterly stupid.
Oh, I said the same thing (heck, I'm the sort who watches English programs with subtitles). Her reasoning was when she sat down to watch a foreign film with her parents, they couldn't follow the subtitles, so it'd be better for the older people to have a dub available. But honestly, older people are probably not going to be the ones interested, and if they really are, then hopefully they won't let subtitles stop them -- since many don't have dubs available in the first place. I'm going to insist on my list whether or not they have dubs.
As somebody who works in a theater that occasionally receives foreign films, subtitles do not stop older viewers. Older audiences are usually the only ones coming to those films.
In addition, people who don't watch subtitled films are less likely to watch a foreign film, dubbed or otherwise.
