It appears that it has closed captioning. What this means is that in order to see the dialogue, you have to turn closed captioning on your TV on before attempting to watch the video. The mechanism used to play closed captioning is in the TV rather than the DVD. Subtitles are included on the dvd and therefore do not have to be turned on- the mechanism for playing subtitles is in the DVD. It is a common mistake to think that closed captioning and subtitles are the same- they are not.
