Indeed. Would like to know the criteria for this map. Football is the most popular sport in Greece and in Bosnia as well. Probably in Russia too.

I can vouch for that. I was at a Polish household last week

Yes, that's it I don't think I had ever heard something as bizarre before that. I don't think it's possible to get used to it unless you've lived with it all your life. And yeah, from what I heard, the Poles really do love it. I find it completely incomprehensible.

I don't know if it's actually worse than Ukrainian TV, though. They'd have Russian voice-over (with at least several people doing the job, so it was more like dubbing), but the sound was a couple of seconds delayed, so you'd get to hear some of the original as well. And then there were subtitles in Ukrainian on top of that. After a few minutes it was enough to make your head start spinning.

I watched that and he sounds quite normal to me. I haven't seen the movie though, neither in English nor in my mother tongue.

I guess it's just a matter of taste or you may be influenced by having heard Hanks speaking in his native English. Consequently, any dubbing attempt automatically involves the risk of sounding weird.

JMHO

Re: European maps on social issues

Is voice over still prevalent in big cities' cinema like Moscow, St.Petersburg, Warsaw etc? Even for blockbusters?

The dubbing in Czechia is excellent and basically every single movie is dubbed. The country's main prize for dubbing excellence is named after a guy who did an amazing job on dubbing Louis de Funès

On the flip side, there's a big debate that this 'excellence' prevents and hinders the mastery of foreign language skills, which is a fair point. It is often argued that the Dutch and the Scandinavians have excellent English-language skills, because they watch movies in the original version with subtitles

On a fun note, there's a very popular Czech-German fairy-tale movie called Three Nuts for Cinderella (Drei Haselnüsse für Aschenbrödel), which is aired every Christmas in several European countries, including Norway.

While the Germans dub the Czech actors and the Czechs dub the German actors (the cast consisted of both nationalities), the Norwegians use just one single guy who speaks for all characters, whether male or female

Also the dubbing can be terrible at times.

French dubbing sounds so boring, they often use the same studio acoustics for all the scenes.

German dubbing is much better technically, but the voices can be over the top. Tom Hanks for example always sounds clownish in german, even in his serious roles

Re: European maps on social issues

I am just so glad we use subtitles here. It seems horrid to never hear a movie (in cinema or tv) in its original language, so much is lost in translation. It's also much better for your English to hear the original English, not just for the language itself but also for understanding unique expressions and sayings.

Movies for children under 12 years, are mandatory with Slovak dabbing.
Cinema movies, are with original language and slovak subtitles.
Slovak TV channels, have since 2010 to use Slovak dabbing, or subtitles. Older movies (produced before 2010) are mostly dubbed in Czech.
Czech production, is mostly broadcast in original.
