Hmmm, is it about WWII or not?? The picture on the DVD cover shows a modern boat. The text mentions it is set in WWII. I'm confrused.

BTW how long is original Das Boot uncut. On Amazon.com its 293 min. Directors Cut is 209 min. I think original was about 6 hrs. or 360 min.

yeah it's WWII. I think the cover boat might be the U.S. boat swordfish?which is in the movie. But is was a good movie,only thing that threw me off was that they where firing torpedos at 160mtrs...?

Yeah i watched "In Enemy Hands" a few days ago and was pleasantly suprised. Except from the submerched fighting between subs it was pretty authentic i think and i liked the german costumes and actors alot. I watched U-571 after that and it was much worse.

Das Boot's mini-series was 5.5 hours. Though maybe due the way that video is run at a slower speed in NTSC regions I think (something like that anyway) it might be 6 hours in some versions. The longer something goes on for, the higher amount of time that'll be added, half an hour for 5.5 hours doesn't seem too outrageous.

Thanks for the tip! I'll check it out!

Regarding Das Boot's mini-series version:

Are the same actors used? In other words, is it an extended version of the movie, or a whole different cast, et cetera?

Is it available on DVD? I recently bought the shorter movie-length version, and would love to get a copy of the mini-series version if it's obtainable in DVD.

Thanks

no it's exactly the same. ie, the movie was made by just editing bits out of the series and sticking it all together with some slightly different noises and subtitles.

and, yes, it is available on DVD, I own it myself. It lasts for 4 hrs 42 minutes, and it's seamless, so it's not divided into episodes.

I thoroughly recommend it.

The "WW II" sub on the cover looks suspiciously like a modern SSBN http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

actually thats a bit wrong.

the website has got the running time wrong, because that's the exact DVD that I have, and it lasts for about 282 minutes.

seems you can pick it up pretty cheap, too (mine was 10). Can't go wrong! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif
