This movie is amazing. Probably the best submarine movie ever made.
The movie is like 3 hours long, but it goes by very quickly. I highly recommend watching it in German with subtitles, in order to truly experience the tone and emotional drama of the movie.
Even though this movie follows a German Submarine crew during WWII, they did a great job of keeping politics out of the equation and really focusing on the lives of these soldiers living in a tin can in the middle of the war, not knowing what fate will bring. I believe you really get a sense of what it must have been like.
The storytelling is wonderful, and you really get to know these soldiers on a personal level, which makes your investment in the movie that much higher.
You may be surprised by the ending, but I think in the end it serves to show that war is war and in the end, there are no winners.
If you like war movies and submarines, and phenomenal filmmaking you HAVE TO WATCH this movie!
