Synopsis:
Wolfgang Peterson's "Das Boot" is regarded as one of the most outstanding and accurate representations of Germany's elite U-Boat crewmen during World War II. Told from the German perspective the crew aboard U-96 are portrayed in a hopeless life-and-death struggle coping with the endless hours of loneliness and desperation, giving way to terror when confronted by the enemy.

Very moving war U-boat story - Das Boot: The Complete Series review by JD

Spoiler Alert
08/05/2012

A war time story of a submarine crew sent to torpedo North Atlantic convoys. The difference from the usual war story is that it is told from the German perspective, it is touchingly sensitive about humanity and empathic to the British navy and it is much more about how terrifying being underwater is, than about excitement of warfare. I am so glad I have never been in a submarine with a destroyer overhead. The difficulty of staying sane was made plain. The twist at the end is agonising pathos.

Even after all the many years, since I first watched this film, it is as immersive as ever. The music is wonderful news and the cast superb, specially the Captain.
