Maybe someone more knowledgeable about cinema can help me with this one. If Morrissey was watching L'insoumis and other French films as well as Passolini and Italian-language films back in the 80s and 90s... were these films produced with subtitles in those decades? Or did he just watch for the visuals rather than the dialogue?

Depending where he saw them, yes they would have subtitles.

Also it's possible to pick up enough of a language to understand it without having the dexterity to speak it.

I believe Morrissey watched those films in subtitles.

Majority of non- English films are sub-titled in the UK which is one of the reasons I love watching films in cinemas.
BBC and Channel 4 are broadcasting foreign films / dramas in subtitles.
