Where to watch the movie Delibal in English
I wish all movies could be found on Netflix or Amazon Prime. However, Turkish movies have not yet reached their peak of distribution, so you can’t find these types of films on those platforms.
However, you can buy Delibal on Amazon, in its DVD version, and with English subtitles.
On the other hand, you can also get the movie in English on other unofficial online platforms. However, it is no secret that the quality of online movies on these platforms leaves much to be desired. Therefore, we recommend you to resort to the official platforms.
