Das Boot

Α Great flick, must see regardless of what Genres you enjoy.  Makes you think of things beyond the scope of the story.

The best sub movie of all time. No doubt. Tight, gripping action, fantastic dialogue (best heard in German with subtitles… even, if like me you don’t speak German.. unless you DO speak German, in which case you can probably drop the subtitles), and wonderful acting. If available, get the mini-series version and watch it over several nights. Even the cinema version was a wonderful film though.

About Thomas Evans

I'm a writer of mysteries, espionage, and speculative fiction. In my previous incarnation I was an archaeologist specializing in gender and identity in Iron and Bronze Age Europe. Mostly, however, I was known for my works with the use of geomatics, multiscalular spatial analysis and landscape theory within archaeology.

    My son loves this movie, too. He loves submarines but he is picky about the movies and books he reads. This one got his stamp of approval. I’ll have to suggest he look for the mini-series version. I don’t think he knew about it.

      It is a fantastic movie, and a very good book (thought it is written in the first person present, which some people find problematic).

      Funny enough, I’m reviewing sub movies this month, just for the heck of it.
