Das Boot (The Boat)
I’ve just finished watching Das Boot (Wikipedia), the director’s cut. It’s an amazing movie, filmed in 1981, but yet with an incredible quality of audio, video and special effects. But, above all, the story is breath taking, simply amazing, with unexpected twists and a very rich text. The DVD I own has 3h20m of film, and it’s worth every minute. I strongly recommend this film.
“Autumn 1941 43 young german sailors aboard u-96 enter the war against britain. They seek adventure respect and heroism. For them this voyage is for glory. For their captain a seasoned war veteran at the young ages of 30 it is a mission against enemy destroyers in a blood-red sea that can devour a ship.” (Amazon)
