This is reality. Watch it all turn psychological.

"I asked for it. 'To be heading into the inexorable... where no mother will care for us... no woman crosses our path... where only reality reigns... with cruelty and grandeur.' I was drunk with those words. Well, this is reality."

The claustrophobic world of a WWII German U-boat; boredom, filth, and sheer terror.
This is the story of 42 raw recruits caught up in a war they di... read more

First watched a few years ago whilst taking my A level in German. It's quite simply one of the greatest war films ever made and possible one of the greatest films ever made. Stunning cinematography,brilliantly directed and a great performance by Jurgen Pronchnow. Also kick started the career of Petersen in Hollywood. Easily a 5 star masterpiece.

A great movie

Since I kept hearing good things about this flick, I was really eager to check it out. Eventually, I thought it was quite amazing and it was much better than anything directed before or after by Wolfgang Petersen (what happened to the guy actually? He seems to be pretty much retired nowadays). Anyhow, I always thought that there was something fascinating about movies dealing with submarines and th... read more

It is 1942 and the German submarine fleet is heavily engaged in the so called "Battle of the Atlantic" to harass and destroy English shipping. With better escorts of the Destroyer Class, however, German U-Boats have begun to take heavy losses. "Das Boot" is the story of one such U-Boat crew, with the film examining how these submariners maintained their professionalism as soldiers, attempted to accomplish impossible missions, while all the time attempting to understand and obey the ideology of the government under which they served.

"22.4. Merkkasin katsotuksi elokuvaversion, vaikka DVD:n kannessa luki, että olisin katsonut minisarjan. Mitään indikaattoreita jaksojen välillä ei vaan nähty, joten koin katsovani ennemmin elokuvan kuin sarjan. Jään odottelemaan oikeushaasteita. Sukellusveneessä on melkoinen meininki meneillään kun miehisten miesten hiki alkaa lemuta yhdessä homeisten ruokien kanssa. Sitä, miksi pitkälle reissulle otetaan helposti pilaantuvia ruokia eikä esimerkiksi purkkisapuskaa, en tiedä. Kl"

" Notes: Well, I thought it was quite amazing and it was much better than anything directed before or after by Wolfgang Petersen. Anyhow, I always thought that there was something fascinating about movies dealing with submarines and this one is by far the best one.

Leffalista 2016 (79 movies items)

"24.8 Netflix rewatched Edellisestä katselusta on kyllä tosi kauan, mutta lopussa viimeistään muistui mieleen että onhan tuo katseltu kuitenkin. Koska jaksoin katsoa kaksi ja puolituntisen leffan putkeen (theatrical cut), niin hyvin Das Boot upposi vieläkin."
