This week we watch a German film about hot, sweaty men squeezing themselves into very tight spaces, putting themselves through moments of extreme tension and includes a joyous climax…Well, if you couldn’t have guessed from that description,, we’re obviously referring to the 1982 submarine based thriller Das Boot from director Wolfgang Petersen. We managed to watch the correct version this time around (of which there are many; well done us!) and are taken on a true ‘submarine ride’ of emotions in this definitive underwater war movie.
