Das Boot

1981

Wolfgang Petersen
Director

Umpteenth release for director Wolfgang Petersen's U-Boat extravaganza. This time round, we have the original German mini series format. Whatever way it's packaged, this is still one of the very very best WWII films. Go get it. ~ WS.

5 hours long and spoken in German (but thanks to modern-day technology the DVD comes with English audio) - not "one of" the best submarine movies ever made but...THE BEST ever made! ~ LH.
