Laconia / British film version
on 7 January 2012
The 'Sinking of the LACONIA' ran on Germa TV under the title LACONIA. After having read several first class reviews in the English speaking press, I failed to recognize their positive assessment. Apparently the cut of the German version was different, creating a somewhat different impression, if not to say moreless seems to almost have destroyed the positive impression English speakers seemed to have had.
So I ordered the 'original' from Amazon and found out that my impression was essentially correct. The English original is not only different, the sequences are in a different (original)order and - make more sense. An almost different movie so it seems.I can but strongly recommend to watch the 'original'.
