In 1982, DAS BOOT took moviegoers on an unprecedented journey.
Audiences set out to sea with the patrol of U-96 - one of the famed German U-boats that prowled the North Atlantic challenging the British Navy at every turn - and faced an astonishing series of life-and-death struggles as the scared, exhausted and desperately courageous crew blasted away in battle, dove to untested depths, and were evading depth charges in an all-out effort not so much to win the war as to return home to their families and loved ones.
This is director Wolfgang Petersen’s ultimate version of one of the most critically acclaimed war movies of all time.
