Das Boot - The Director's Cut

Media: DVD
Author/Director: Wolfgang Petersen
Language: German
Subtitles: English, French, Spanish

It is 1942 and the German submarine fleet is heavily engaged in the so-called "Battle of the Atlantic" to harass and destroy English shipping. With better escorts of the Destroyer Class, however, German U-Boats have begun to take heavy losses. Das Boot is the story of one such U-Boat crew, with the film examining how these submariners maintained their professionalism as soldiers, attempted to accomplish impossible missions, while all the time attempting to understand and obey the ideology of the government under which they served.

Note: This edition of the movie runs 3 hours and 28 minutes, which is a full hour longer than the original theatrical release.  Because of the unusually long running time, the DVD in the MLTC library is double-sided, with the first half of the movie on one side and the conclusion on the other. 

The streaming button below will deliver the entire 3 hour and 28 minute run, without any break or intermission. You can pause the stream as needed.
