This gripping tale from Academy Award(r) nominated director Wolfgang Peterson follows the daring patrol of U96, one of the famed German U boats known as the "gray wolves." The crew aboard the U96 is graphically portrayed in a desperate life and death struggle, coping with endless hours of claustrophobic boredom at sea, which quickly gives way to terror when confronting the enemy. DAS BOOT deliversan amazingly accurate account of Germany's elite U boat crewmen, as it deliberately hammers away atthe tragic waste of war.
The original DVD release for Das Boot featured a fabulous digitally remastered Dolby Digital 5.1 soundtrack. In addition, that DVD included one of the more informative director commentaries and making-of documentaries yet. The only complaint was that the movie was so long that it was spread over two sides, and the viewer had to get up to flip the disc over halfway through. This Superbit version won't remove the inconvenience of getting up off the sofa; it spreads the movie across two separate DVDs. However, the picture is slightly less noisy, something that will only be noticeable on larger screens with high quality A/V equipment due to the already murky, shadowy cinematography inside the submarine. The Superbit version of the movie has both a Dolby Digital 5.1 and a new DTS 5.1 mix of the soundtrack which is very similar to the digitally remastered soundtrack from the original DVD, but both are at a higher bit rate. Whereas the original DVD had a Dolby Digital 5.1 mix of both the original German and an English dubbed soundtrack, the Superbit DVD's Dolby Digital 5.1 and DTS mixes are both of the German soundtrack. The English dubbed soundtrack only comes in Dolby Surround.
Is the higher bit rate audio and video worth losing the commentary and documentary? For anyone without the right A/V setup, it won't be, but a submarine movie is so much about the audio experience that Das Boot might be one of the movies most worthy of the Superbit treatment. --Eugene Wei --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.See all Product description

The captain comes across as a true seaman and at this distance one can abstract the fact that the German submarine force was an unrelenting killer of allied merchant marine, a force which almost isolated Britain in the early days of 1942. Had it not been for the intelligence gained from Ultra, the development of effective airborne radar finally improved so that it could pick up a snorting sub, the British survival story might have been different. But the true value of this film is the story of a crew in their day-to-day life attacking Allied shipping, and finally, in being attacked themselves by depth-charging and from the air when they were safe (they thought) in their base at Las Rochelle. While it is not perfect trying to follow English subtitles, the film in German strikes a chord of realism . All in all a great film and better as a miniseries in colour.
Submariners are a breed all their own. They have to be!
I recommend this movie!
WW2 German U-boat warfare classic movie.
