C'est le meilleur film sur le Titanic que j'aie vu. C'est un quasi-documentaire sur la tragédie de cette nuit de 1912. C'est certain que le film de James Cameron a coûté $200 millions mais ''A Night to Remenber'' reste le plus réel film sur ce qui s'est passé.

TOP 500 REVIEWERon December 28, 2015
A Night to Remember(released July/58)starred,among others Kenneth More,Ronald Allen,Robert Ayers and Honor Blackman .The film was based on Walter Lord's best selling book of the same name.Other than not showing the breaking up of the ship above the water,the film is a relatively faithful adaption of that book and the facts.
The story of course finds the supposedly unsinkable ship foundering after sideswiping an iceberg late on April12/14(It actually sank on the 13th).This movie gets us to the strike rather quickly and settles down for the rest of the film showing us the after effects of it.At first comes the calm and reasoning period as they try and figure out the real damage then start putting people on to the lifeboats.Slowly but surely a sense of urgency descends over the passengers,ultimately making way to out right panic.There are many heroic moments,along with the cowardly.But in the end it is a human tragedy that need not have happened at all had laws been more stringent re the life boats.Not to mention the incomprehensible behaviour of the crew of the Californian,just 10 miles away and which could have saved most of the lives lost.
The film is solidly acted all around and Kenneth More shines as Lightholer,the captain's second and who ultimately survived the sinking.This print(in B&W) is a restored one and it looks as clear and crisp as if it had been filmed yesterday.It is in its original a/r of 1:66:1.Extras are on the second disc which include past interviews with real Titanic survivors, a /93 documentary of the film and an /06 documentary by the BBC.
All in all a fabulous and must have film for those especially interested in the Titanic.Even if you are not a Titanic fan,the tragedy that plays out will keep you riveted to your seat until the end.As usual a Criterion release is a superior release,so you can bet on the highest quality presentation available.Highly recommended.

Really well done movie. One can more readily understand what those passengers must have gone through. You felt as if you were there, and were ever so glad that you weren't!!

The real story, without the pap of two-dimensional people and phony story-lines. The tragedy as it happened.

I bought this movie as part of my brother's 60th birthday gift a couple of years ago. He first saw this movie as a young boy with our dad. He was very happy with the quality of the movie and the bittersweet memories it evoked.
