Das Boot is a great movie, besides the fact that the water is a greenish mossy colored water its still a great movie I picked up the directors cut back in 98 i think it was and ive seen it multiple times since then.

vanjast you should see it, starts off great, it has a realistic feel to how people would act compared to some, u571 was okay but i didnt so much like the fact that a crew of what 7 us submariners could take and control a U-boat and ontop of that sink a german destoryer with it.

Excellent portrayal of how war sux.

RTB isn't necessarily a time to relax either - how about returning from a patrol only to bombed the **** out of.

For anyone who hasn't seen it, and is on this forum, and enjoys this sim - it should be mandatory viewing. I have the directors cut, but can only watch it if my wife is at work because she hates it and talks all the way through it then says "well, you've seen it hundreds of times". It is quite a movie, one that will never be equalled

lol Huey well considering how the directors cut is like 3 hours and 50 mins long, or some wheres around there. I usualy watch it late at night since i can be alone and not have interuptions personaly i think the best parts of the movie is about 40 mins into it all the way to the end of the movie the first 40 mins im not that too into it but its still good

The green water is the Bodensee. They didn't like filming with miniatures in the open sea, so they filmed the diving scenes in a lake.

The first time I saw Das Boot, i watched the German Language version. Despit the subtitles I thought it was much better than the english version.

Ever since I saw Das Boot, I can't play this game without constantly relating in-game action to the movie. Of course, using the Das Boot Besatzung mod sure helps.

I bought it officially in Polish Media Markt
special price EUR 2,50 (original version + subtitles)!
Still remember old TV series many years ago - that impressed me so much. Those scenes in late'80 looked even better.

Reading this thread has made me want to watch it again tonight!

The music and sound effects are excellent too (I wish I had surround sound).

Vanjast, if you can, get the 6hr uncut version (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0001XAOLQ/qid=1142941097/sr=8-1/ref=pd_bbs_1/103-6897267-2020608?%5Fencoding=UTF8&v=glance&n=130). The Director's Cut version (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0767802470/ref=imdbpov_dvd_1/103-6897267-2020608?%5Fencoding=UTF8&v=glance&n=130) is good too, but might leave you wanting more...

Whichever version you get, it's best to watch it in German with subtitles. Oh, and make sure you have some good beer to drink while you watch it.

'Das Boot' is such a good film that I sometimes wish Wolfgang Petersen would make a new film/series based on another U-boat crew-member's story (as there are so many in print), or even some other Kriegsmarine/Wehrmacht/Luftwaffe personal account/story. I'm sure that Petersen could build on the success of 'Das Boot' like 'Band of Brothers' did after 'Saving Private Ryan' (and no doubt 'The Pacific War' mini series (http://www.the-pacific-war.com/) will after the inevitable popularity of the 'Flags of Our Fathers' film (http://www.flagsofourfathers.net/))

Are there any other worthwhile German-language WW2 films other than 'Das Boot'?? I've seen 'Downfall' (great film) and 'Stalingrad' (good story, but not so good visually).

I'm waiting for this "Sophie Scholl" movie to be release on DVD here in the US. Was nominated for the Oscars for best foreign film, but did not win it.

Although not German, but French, I'd also recommend "A very long Engagment" it's a combination mystery and war film based on WWI trench warfare. Very well made, beautiful visuals and you have to pay attention.

A Very Long Engagement (http://imdb.com/title/tt0344510/)

Sophie Scholl - Die letzten Tage (http://imdb.com/title/tt0426578/)

Viking,
I do have surround sound & yes it is amazing. The depth charging comes at you from all directions. Good beer is a must, I tend to go for a Grolsch or a Schneiderweiss, and I always make sure to have some good snacks to wash down with it. I suppose this might be the other reason my wife hates it, because I can make a pig of myself and focus on the movie (not her). If I can find the uncut I may get that too, is there much difference between that & the directors cut?

Schniederweisse,...Now there's a beer I haven't had in awhile...

Anyways, Surround sound is a must.

To answer your question...there is much more character development in the extended version (~5.5 hours). It's essentially the whole TV version, and some other cut scenes. Same story, but you get to find out what makes certain crewmembers tick.

Silent,
so it's much closer to the book then? Thats good if it is because I loved the book, it had me enthralled for days. I may have spelt the name of the beer wrong, but its only just started coming into this country, and being a fan of German beer........

I recently just bought the directors cut off ebay (about 2 weeks ago and it still isn't here). Then I was irritated when I walked into HMV and saw it on sale as a 2/$30 deal. And there was a wide selection to choose the second movie from. Not bad because thats about the same as what it cost me from ebay, however this one said something like "digimax" "digitec" version... perhaps I have it wrong. It says something to the effect of high resolution and sound quality and what not.

D'OH!!!

That was the Directors cut version by the way, I didn't think to buy the uncut. I thought the Uncut doesn't have the digitally remastered sound?

As for beer, I've been drinking some Grolsh recently but only because it was on sale (I'm alittle short on Funds here). Heiniken is good, (also can't afford it) and I would love to try Becks but the opportunity has yet to come up. Not many bars keep it on tap here in Southern Ontario (Canada) either.

Due to buget restrictions I usually drink Sleeman Cream Ale, still pretty dang good.

http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif Mmmmm... Schneider Weiss is good!! I've not had that one for a while either. Recently I've been drinking Franziskaner Dunkel Weiss (http://www.franziskaner.com/3_products/3_1_product_spectrum/index.htm) - a rare find in the UK and a very special beer with a very deep flavour http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif ....Goes very well with Das Boot or Silent Hunter 3, especially with a bag of piri-piri nuts http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif Now that's what I call a cheap night-in!

My lady now knows to find something else to do when the Das Boot DVD uncut version comes out to play. After disc 1 finishes, I usually go and see if she needs anything before I submerge again...

The uncut version is worth every penny - you won't believe how quickly that 5 hours passes!

Gotta get me some surround speakers for the TV. I think it's the thought of all those wires around the room that holds me back.

@ Silent Otto - thanks for the movie recommendations. I've added both DVD's to my Amazon rental list, so I should get to see them in the next month or so (after 'Deathwatch' and 'Below' recommended in another thread... what would I do without this forum!?!) http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

I think the version you saw was perhaps the 'Superbit' version (http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/ASIN/B00008YNDC/ref=pd_cpt_gw_1/026-8871043-2610833)

DVD Description
The Superbit Collection sets a new benchmark in high resolution DVD picture and sound, creating the ultimate in home entertainment. Superbit DVDs utilise a special high bit rate digital transfer process that optimises video quality and offers a choice of both DTS and 5.1 Dolby Digital audio.

The uncut version does not have these enhancements, but if you turn the sound up and drink some beer maybe you won't notice http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/10.gif

I'm fairly happy with what I have right now, and when I got home from work yesterday I looked in the fridge to find my wife had bought me a six-pack of becks and a stick of very hot salami.
A very happy boy, and gradualy getting larger. Watched it again, I had to as this thread, the becks etc made me do it....
