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

True gritty war movie
I watched this movie for the first time on DVD, at home alone and with headphones on.I was gripping the edge of the chair during the tense underwater scenes, I felt I was aboard the U- boat . A sure sign of a great movie is when the viewer feels a part of it. The whole cast were believable, as were the characters they portrayed. A definite 10/10 movie. I preferred the sub titles to the dubbed voices concept,as the film is shown and heard as it was meant to be. Director Wolfgang Petersen takes us through a fantastic journey,giving us an insight into the fun, fears and general life aboard a German submarine during the second world war. The films ironic ending tops off the tragic reality of war,regardless of what side you were on.

Masterpiece
This film will grab you from the opening shot and suck you into its grim, realistic portrayal of life aboard a German U-Boat. If your looking for 'gung-ho' action then i'm pleased to say you'll be grandly disappointed.

W.P (the director) and the actors have captured pure tension, absolute horror and genuine fear with alarming accuracy. It feels like your watching the 'real thing', not a movie. (And if, like me, you have to watch the subtitled version, this feels even more so! Note: Avoid the dubbed version, it ruins any suspense as the 'acting' is abysmal!)

Characterisation is wonderful in this film, the change in each man as their voyage becomes ever more doomed is gripping. Because of the films length, you can really experience why characters act as they do, their motivations and changing mental states are utterly believable and adds to the films substance. Every time a depth charge drops, you can smell the sweat coming off the foreheads of the actors, and thats testament just as much to the cinematography as the acting. You feel like your on board the boat. Just watching the men on board move around gives the viewer a sense of just how cramped conditions were, and this heightens the overall sense of isolation they must have felt. (For the most part) they have no contact with the outside world, just the guts of the boat and what their instruments and sounds tell them.

All in all, a far superior war film to say, the likes of Saving Private Ryan, which although employing skilled techniques and creative cinematography, forgot to motivate and 'humanise' its characters. D.B illustrates how effective good acting, directing and intelligent writing can combine (without the need for 'Hollywood' production values) to produce a moving, powerful masterpiece of a film that will live long in the memory.

One of My Top 5 Movies EVER
I come from a family of submariners. My grandfather commanded a sub in the Pacific during WW2, and my dad went on to do nearly 30 years as crew and finally skipper in a nuke hunter/killer. So I kinda know the history of subs 1st hand. This movie pulls no punches and is stunningly accurate. It is a work of genius from one of the greatest directors of our time.

I must qualify that by saying PLEASE don't watch the dubbed English version. This film has to be seen in German with subtitles, and you absolutely have to see the director's cut. Three and a half hours of laughter, terror, claustrophobia, tenderness, and finally a sense of the futility of war. It's just brilliant.

Jürgen Prochnow has made some good films in his career, but he will never better this performance. He is the epitome of a sub captain. Steely, yet sensitive to his crew. Determined and sometimes rash, but always in control, and the love of his crew for him is clear throughout. Even I would follow him until the end!!

I kinda feel bad about praising Jürgen Prochnow so highly because, seriously, this is one of the few movies I've seen where EVERY member of the cast is just perfect. All credit to the casting people. You would not change anyone. Bernd Tauber as the Chief is just awesome. Erwin Leder as Johann is just so right, and Herbert Grönemeyer as the raw reporter who grows up is amazing.

This film should be up there with the greatest war movies of all time. Unfortunately, I think because it's told from the German side, it will never get the recognition it truly deserves. Very sad, as it never glorifies Nazism. It's simply a tale of ordinary people in extraordinary circumstances - which kinda sums up all wars.

Incredible film from an incredible director.

Why can't we be friends?!
This movie makes you realize that we are all human and wars are wrong. I never thought I'd say "poor Nazis, poor men". Watching the movie I found myself sympathizing the crew and wishing that they succeed. We all know (or most of us) that what the Nazis did was wrong and since the nazi regime established in Germany, all the movies were about killing the Nazis. I am glad I've seen this movie that is kind of.. from the nazi soldiers point of view but made in the American hero way. We are human and by definition we make mistakes, we hurt nature, we hurt the animals and we hurt each other. Before we hate someone we should think twice. For all the SF fans who may read this I recommend "Enemy Mine" (1985), it's the same message and also a great movie.

Listen up Hollywood - this is how its done
What can be said about this epic that has not already been said? Peterson has created the grittiest, most realistic war drama ever. It knocks hollywood epics like Saving Private Ryan on their sorry overproduced, oversentimental behinds, it torpedoes other submarine films before they have a chance to shout "dive!, dive!, dive!".

I first saw this in its original form as a miniseries with english subtitles, and if you can find this version then this should be your first port of call, although the Director's cut I now own is also top notch and doesn't miss much from the series.

where to begin? The lurking claustrophobia, the dark humour, the gritty reality of the piece. The excellent acting, the perfect timing, the garotte of suspense tightened with every passing minute in much of the undersea scenes. The lack of any known "star" who you know will just save the day and live to tell the tale. The historical accuracy and attention to detail. The lack of a demonised "other" figure for the enemy. The lack of any kind of preachy message in the finale other than "War is Hell". It has everything you could ask of a TV series or film about the era. 10 out of 10.

yes it was very realistic
I saw this film in a theater when it was a recent release, 1982. Was so impressed by the realism that afterward I wrote to a friend: "It makes Star Wars look like a Porky Pig cartoon!" But seriously, the U-boats were a major danger to allied shipping, and American and British sailors cursed at them. Das Boot shows the German side of the story with the crewmen cursing in German (with English subtitles) at the destroyers overhead. The German sailors were shown as regular people bravely doing their best in very difficult situations, not as mindless, fanatical Nazis like a cheesy American film might portray them. The cinematography was excellent, really made me feel like was in sub with them. Thankfully it wasn't in smellovision.

One of the finest war movies ever made
Actually it does not do the movie justice to call it a war movie. The war movie genre doesn't lend itself to many classics. For me the movie is about male camaraderie in the face of grim, overwhelming circumstances. The stoic captain maintains discipline below the waves despite everything. He is perfectly cast. It is one of those few movies that actually improves with each viewing. Apart from the above, the movie is also interesting in that it is from the German viewpoint (and made by Germans). The acting is superb and the scenes realistic. As with most foreign language movies, it should be watched subtitled. (Although the movie makes we want to go out and learn German, just to experience the movie more fully)

You have to have good men. Good men, all of them.
If I had the time to take this movie door-to-door and sit down with everyone in America to watch this film, I would. Everyone needs to realize that I have a fascination with submarine films. I loved The Hunt for Red October and Crimson Tide. Both of them rank as my top action films. I don't know why I love this genre so much. I think it has to do somewhat with my passion for sci-fi. The ocean is almost like fighting in another world. So many times we have seen wars play out on land, and while there is only so much you can show with a land fight, the war field on the open sea allows for so much more creativity.

Director Wolfgang Peterson gives us some great characters. While not much dialogue happens in this film, you can see everyone's expressions on their faces, and those expressions tell better stories than words. You can see their fear, their excitement, their sadness, and their power by just the way that Peterson directs them. With his direction, I felt that I was on this U-Boat with the crew. Peterson perfectly portrays a feeling of crampness and claustrophobia wrapped together as one. I think that during one of the bombing scenes I broke a sweat because of what was happening on screen.

Finally, I am also a fan of films that tell a different angle on the story. So many years I have watched war movie after war movie that show the victorious American's beating the classic "evil-doers". Now don't get me wrong, these are fun sometimes, but I love to see a different angle. In history class we didn't learn about the casualties of the Germans in WWII. We learn about them as a statistic, and never put these heroes on a human level. This film humanizes the German's conditions during the war. The Germans are human being also, who fought for their country just as valiantly as our soldiers did during WWII. They had families, they had pasts, they had homes that they left to become a part of history. To fight for your beliefs. That is what America teaches us, fight for what we believe in....doesn't it?

I could talk about this for hours, but instead I am going to sit back, relax, and tell you how wonderful Das Boot was to watch. I have not been this entertained for a long time. Bravo to everyone involved in this film. I think it IS the best war film ever released (that I have seen). I want everyone to get out of their seats this weekend and go rent this movie. I guarantee that you will not be disappointed.

Grade: ***** out of *****

The best WWII movie ever!!!
Thats right, not even saving private Ryan comes close, this film is a masterpiece! from beginning to end, non-stop action and suspense, never a dull moment!, it has these nail-biting scenes and moments like when the depth charges blow and the UDS (ultrasonic detection system) sounds, just chilling and gut-wrenching! and the scene where the chief is sharing his pictures of him and his wife are heart-warming, simply beautiful a 10 out of 10 rating,the soundtrack is also amazing, so beautiful I even bought the CD, this is a real WWII movie!, my hats of to Wolfgang Petersen!!!.

A must see WWII film!

Wunderbar !!
Well - a very exciting movie with very good attention to detail. I liked the German with English subtitles - the dubbed version didn't have the impact their language provides. Some beautiful scenes and some very scary scenes. J. Prochnow was the perfect choice for the Kapitan. What was also very good - was the dialog in which they criticize their own leaders & make no pretense about their doubts about the war. The ending bothered me in that the boat he loved sank before his very eyes. But - in the German Navy - the submariners suffered the highest casualty rate. Of the 35,000 submarine sailors - barely 4,000 ever survived the war. But - this is a movie I could watch over & over again. Cannot say that about too many other movies. Very good directing & cinematography. Wish they'd make more films like this. Want to discuss it - I'm at ml2348@att.com
