In the present article the author argues that dubbing is an expression of nationalism and that foreign films are brought to their audience in their own language and frequently tampered with in order to fit that audience's expecations and cultural values. This claim is illustrated by a discussion of the Spanish version of Mike Newell's film Into the West.
