Just saw a television commercial for a special showing of Das Boot:the Director's Cut

I missed the timeframe, but it'll be on the evening of June 30th on AMC (American Movie Classics)

I've seen it. It is unbelievably good. Haven't seen the full version due to my lack of fluency in German...

I couldn't or wouldn't watch Das Boot from TV. Not when they're sure to interupt it with commercials. Perhaps if I've not seen it before, I dunno. The movie deservs a full showing, sitting imo. Perhaps an intermission for a wizz break and a beer.

I have both versions on DVD http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

The Directors' Cut (Important : In this case "cut" stands for being cut down to 2-1/2 hours to fit cinema movie length)

It also has Dolby Digital 5.1, DTS, digital improved quality and new added sound effects that replaced the low budget ones the original movie had to use.

The other one is the 5 hour long mini series one, which has more accurate subtitles, the original sound effects but also dolby digital 5.1 http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif (Das Boot was aired as a mini series divided into a handful of episodes but the DVD version is a single 5 hour long movie)

The only version worth seeing is the DVD of the 5 hour mini series. The "short" version isn't nearly as good.

I bought mine in Virgin Megastore last summer, great, great buy!
