    Gladiator question

    OK, all you German speakers, I have a question for you. In the movie "Gladiator", the German chieftain says; "Ihr seid verfluchte hunde" then he holds the emissary's head aloft and says something else. What does he say and what does it mean? This has been bothering me since I first saw this movie. :
    Don't let Europe Rule Britannia!

    O sorry chap, missed that second part

    It's just gibberish I think, at least according to the script it's just "hollering the feral cries of war"

    I once read that the Saxons bashed their shields and yelled something like “Uut Uut Uut”!

    “Out, Out, Out”! Seems okay to me, I get the urge to shout it when I see a headscarf :

    In any case the said Germanic chieftain would not have been speaking modern German; perhaps some archaic Frankonian or Low German dialect.
    A people which takes no pride in the noble achievements of remote ancestors
    will never achieve anything worthy to be remembered with pride by remote descendents.

    If anyone cares, considering the date (180AD) the opening battle in Gladiator most likely shows the last fight between Romans and Markommani. :book2:

    Nice one.

    The whole Germania saga would be worth a series of epic films, culminating in the Teutobergerwald episode.

    Now, If I could only have an unlimited film budget.:icon12:
