Since the time I realized that I was a movie-buff and a fanatic, I never really found myself eager enough to watch anything in a foreign language. However, lately, I had a lot of people recommending Das Boot (The Boat) to me. Since I was compelled to the core, I had to give in and begin this movie.
It is a German movie that I watched last Saturday. This is one such movie that is based on real events from World War II. This was another reason, besides the non-ending compulsion, to give it a go. Needless to explain, I thoroughly enjoyed every part of the movie, right from the start to finish.
If diving into the details of the movie, originally, Das Boot was released in 1981. This German war movie was written and directed by Wolfgang Petersen. It is based on the appalling events of the second world war and talks about the incidents and activities of German submarine “U-96” and its crew, as they step towards a hazardous patrol in the Battle of the Atlantic.
The movie delineates the tedium of the fruitless hunt and the excitement of battle. It also depicts men serving aboard U-boats as mere regular people with a passion to put their best foot forward for their comrades and their country. In this masterpiece, you can find a variety of legends, such as Martin Semmelrogge, Hubertus Bengsch, Klaus Wennermann, Herbert Gronemeyer, Jurgen Prochnow, and many others.
What intrigued me the most about this movie was the realistic portrayal of the daily struggles of soldiers to stay motivated.
