  Das Boot - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Das Boot (IPA: [dɑs boːt], German for The Boat) is a film directed by Wolfgang Petersen, adapted from a novel of the same name by Lothar-Günther Buchheim.
Petersen then oversaw the editing of six hours of film, from which was distilled Das Boot: The Director's Cut, 216 minutes long (3 hours, 36 minutes), released in 1997, which combines the action sequences seen in the feature-length version with character-development scenes contained in the mini-series.
Most of the filming was done in one year; to make the appearance of the actors as realistic as possible, scenes were filmed in sequence over the course of the year.

 Das Boot Director's Cut Movie Review   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
"Das Boot" deconstructs the mythos of the valiant German submarines and their valorous crews who steadfastly defended their Fatherland in a series of decisive tactical strikes.
In reality, the U-Boats were cramped (you had to drop everything you were doing and stand up whenever anyone wanted to pass by), dehumanizing (with no such thing as privacy in the crowded crew quarters), and cesspools for various forms of pestilence, such as crab lice.
If you enjoyed "Das Boot" in its original theatrical release, you will definitely enjoy the Director's Cut, which provides a more complete portrayal of events on board a U-Boat.
