In Barcelona, it’s like a continuous international film festival. They show many independent films from around the world, as well as feature films from Hollywood. This will help help with your next movie selection.
VOSE means Version Original Subtitulada en Español. The movie is in its original language with Spanish subtitles.
VO means Version Original. There are no subtitles and the movie is played in its original language. Just make sure you are proficient in the original language – it’s not always English!
Note: Many people/blogs misinterpret VO as voice over/dubbed, and that’s not accurate.
