  4. The fcuking dozy bitch of an announcer couldn't even pronounce it correctly ffs!
  5. Not online though. Too bad. A good film about how the Nazis failed to kill my grandfather - but not through lack of trying!

    Oh yes. I bought the mini-series on DVD and the edited version I loved it that much.

    Bone useless factoid, but the actors came back and dubbed them selves in English later when the film became popular in the English speaking world a few years later.

    Agreed it's a classic, OK off to get the DVD out and watch it again :D
  9. The unedited version is way better, the book is a belter as well.
  10. I must say I'm a purist who has to watch it in German but if it's double dutch to you subtitles are better than dubbing. Hearing a British voice inside a dank German sub sends me back to We Dive at Dawn and brightens the place up far too much.
  11. I'd already read the book (in German) before I saw the filum (again in German, and I've never seen the English language version). Watching the filum was a bit of a readjustment for me, since the book is written in the first person from the point of view of Leutnant Werner (Herbert Grönemeyer). All in all, I prefer the book, as it's much more evocative and really captures the suppressed panic of Werner and the rest of the crew.

    I can't really comment either on the English language version of the filum or the book, so I find any remarks made about both of them very enlightening.

  12. Aprille-Aprille! Probe-alarm :D

    Herbert Grönemeyer? As in ; Mensch is Mensch? I thought it was only Brit pop stars who fancied themselves as actors, or did he act first?

    Das Boot is the dog's. A classic war film, very little (on the same budget and scale) comes close. Liked it so much, I use the old man's avatar.
