From the "Moive Guru" Review:

"Finally we can see the full cut of Das Boot on DVD. Not only does this new edition have a remastered anamorphic transfer, it finally has the full, original 4 hour 50 minute cut (290 minute)that was cropped into the US theatrical edition (2 1/2 hours) and the Director's Cut (3 1/2 hours), but in a movie where the quiet moments where we learn about the characters are the best, the original cut (it was originally made for TV as a 6 part mini-sieres)has my strongest recommendation. The movie itself is the BEST submarine movie ever made without question, and also a realistic portrayal of life in a crowded, dirty German U-boat in WWII, filled with people who just want to go home and live normal lives, but due to the war are denied the chance. You see throughout the movie that the characters are not sympathetic to the German cause and that they aren't really fighting for their country, but their lives. This is one of my favorite war movies for showing the war through a different viewpoint than the one normally seen and an example of great filmmaking (p.s. - aviod the dub at all costs - go for subtitles)."

Availability: This item will be released on June 1, 2004. You may order it now and we will ship it to you when it arrives.

I wish I spoke German, or at least understood it so I could watch the movie without reading the subtitles. Can anyone teach ME?

J├╝rgen Prochnow (The Captain) has only stared in one other movie after the massive acclaim of 'Das Boot' where he plays the same tough, victim of fate, self-defeating role. This being Dune(Duke Leto Atreides). Great movie though the lack of water. Sea's of sand? http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif

Rex Kramer(Airplane, 1980): Do you know what it's like to fall in the mud and get kicked... in the head... with an iron boot? Of course you don't, no one does. It never happens. It's a dumb question... skip it.

Nice save. Or, if it's true, you should say what you mean.

I have the original 6 part series on video in German. I do not speak much German, certainly not enough to follow a movie, but I can asure you, the original as all that it is cracked up to be, brilliant. I am also fortunate that the 3 video cases of the series have all been signed for me by Erich Topp!
