As a big fan of the British duo Pet Shop Boys, I was disappointed by the lack of official Spanish subtitles to their 1987 film It Couldn’t Happen Here.
Encouraged by the British Film Institute‘s remastered version on DVD and Blu Ray, I decided to create my own and make them available for fans to download (as a non-profit personal project and without any intention to infringe on the rights of the work’s owners).
Download .zip file ← right-clic on the link, then select “Save file as…” or a similar option, depending on your browser
- Decompress the zip file (e.g. with 7-zip)
- A digital version of the film on your hard drive
- Both files (film and subtitles) must be in the same folder and have the same name (with their correct extensions)
- A subtitle-enabled player like VLC
- Your operating system might prompt a security alert upon downloading, but the file is perfectly safe.
- The zipped file is in a format not as well-known as .srt and it has a funny extension indeed: “.ass”. This format has certain advantages such as the option to choose the colour and position of each subtitle line, of which I’ve made use.
I hope you enjoy the film and my translation.
