In the Defence of a Lady
Original playout date: 22 December 2007
One of the most watched videos on the channel with more than half a million views, this is not by me, this is an example of some dozen or so occasions where I just took a clip that was not available to an international audience, added subtitles and internationalised it. There have been no complaints or claims by the actual owners, who are shown in the clip, a famous cabaret (sketch show as we would put it) from Poland.
This had already been put up on YouTube a couple of times, not sure that either time is by the actual creator of the piece, but all the versions are in Polish and the exact nature of what’s going on is flying over the heads of a lot of people, and some of the comments on those videos show we need an English version.
So, finally, I spent an hour or so today turning this poignant moral tale for today’s times into something which now can address a much larger audience.
Kudos to the original author, but thumbos for the subtitles on this film, please!
Quote of the clip: “We’ve got scores to settle!”
