A.k.a. 'The Boat.' Totally restored and with over an hour of never-before-seen footage, Das Boot: The Director's Cut is Wolfgang Petersen's acclaimed WWII epic as you have never seen, heard or felt it before. Inspired by actual events, Das Boot brings the life of a U-Boat crewman authentically to life with outstanding performances, a story of courage against impossible odds and scenes of sheer claustrophobic terror that make it one of the most powerful war movies ever made. Based on Lothar G. Buchheim's novel.
