Das Boot the movie,
This review is from: Das Boot -- Superbit [DVD] (DVD)
after watching this years ago on the TV with my father i decided to read the original novel. its was brilliant and when i got the chance to purchase this DVD i jumped at it. the movie in itself is nearly as good as the book, but the directors cut bersion leaves out quite large sections of the original TV film version. Though saying this it is still extremely good at showing the life that these German submariners had during the Battle Of The Atlantic. every time you hear the Ping of the Asdic your skin crawls and you wonder whether they are going to make it out or not. On a whole it is a very well put together film and watching it in german with english (or whatever) subtitles is a must, you just don't get the right feeling without hearing them scream ALARM!! in german.
this is a must for those studying, or interested in the battle of the atlantic. From the german point of view.
