/media/gga/Datos/movies/trailers/big_buck_bunny_1080p_surround.avi -vf 
subtitles=../../Charlie\\\'s\\\ Angels.srt

Gets me a tad further:

[Parsed_subtitles_0 @ 0x7fc591925420] Unable to open ../../Charlies 
Error initializing filter 'subtitles' with args '../../Charlie's Angels.srt'

Reports the file name is being passed correctly, but the subtitle parser 
messes it up.
Is there any workaround against this dilemma?
