    English subs for tazz_85's link:
    They're alrightish but have some bad parts - which might be even more confusing in the beginning when you don't know what this short is about and are expecting a straight documentary, lol.

    It's not what you think: in India, 420 is a code which refers to fraud.

    To quote again from one of filmcave's (helpful) articles: "Incidentally, Kubelka intentionally left the film unsubtitled. He believes subtitles ruin the integrity of the image. But perhaps more significantly, he seems to feel that the pure sound-and-image collisions will be strong enough to have an impact on a viewer, without her or him necessarily understanding the (mostly German) dialogue."
    I'm German and find the muffled dialogue very hard to understand anyway; I also feel like it's not necessary. This is more about montage / experiment in composition.

    As one of the other articles states: "While there is no definite narrative in Kubelka’s “Unsere Afrikarese” nor use of subtitles for the non-German-speaking audience, his use of non-temporal cuts in editing (i.e. no definite progression of time or any hint about when in the trip certain shots occurred) [...]"
    Of course there is a difference between that and randomness. How much that will do for you as the viewer, except if you're interested in technical aspects, is another story.

    LOL, completely ridiculous cheese with the silliest of all villains. I can't believe it's on two serious official horror lists! Even for a ghost train kind of flick it's not scary for a second, bar some torture. The awful acting (especially from the Edith actress) and laughable script & dialogue aside, the thing has a vibrant 60s look of higher quality than it deserves and actually a few nice shots (and a lot of terrible ones with mindnumbing editing). Stupid fun for the B-crowd.

    I highly recommend the Rifftrax version.
