"Das Boot: The Director's
Directed by Wolfgang Petersen
Autumn, 1941: 43 young German sailors aboard U-96 enter the war against
Britain. Wolfgang Petersen's
riveting, claustrophobic, U-Boat
adventure drama was inspired by the actual experiences of a WWII German
photojournalist. Presented in its original
widescreen theatrical release ratio, this version also includes a newly redesigned digital
soundtrack. Das Boot earned six Academy Award nominations, including
the nomination for "Best Picture" (1982) and is one of the most
revered anti-war films in history. With Juergen Prochnow, Herbert Gruenemeyer and Klaus Wennemann.
Presented on two cassettes/discs. German with English subtitles. Color.
