The human face, and cost, of submarine warfare
- Das Boot review by AR
A superbly crafted film which takes you right in to the human side of the U-boat crew. Even if they are on the 'wrong side,' you side with them, thrill with them, are terrified with them, and finally maybe even cry for them. The English language version still seems utterly authentic. If I have only given this four stars, it's because I almost never award five: 4.98!
