War stories are guaranteed success in the cinema and in the eyes of critics. Films like Dunkirk, 1917, and All Quiet on the Western Front have been acclaimed by history experts. Saving Private Ryan and Schindler’s List have also earned their place among the great war films of all time.

In addition to Hollywood movies, there are great masterpieces that fascinate and inspire viewers. One of the best war films does not star Tom Hanks, Jake Gyllenhaal, or Liam Neeson. In fact, this film was made thousands of miles from Hollywood studios and became an epic war film that no one should miss.

Directed by legendary German director Wolfgang Petersen, the 1981 film The Submarine (Das Boot) lasts more than three and a half hours in length. This film adaptation of the novel by Lothar-Günther Buchheim was the highest-grossing film in Germany and it went down in history as one of the great classics of European cinema.

As one of the few German directors to reach the top of Hollywood, Petersen was responsible for numerous cult classics and box office hits. However, his greatest masterpiece, with which he became almost immortal, is precisely The Submarine (Das Boot). The movie was nominated for a total of six Oscars in 1983, including Best Picture, and is considered one of the few films that caused a stir at the time, provoking heated debates.

The central theme of the story is the daily life of the crew of the German submarine U-96 in 1941. In the middle of World War II, the crew undertakes a secret mission. During the Battle of the Atlantic, under the command of Captain Henrich Lehmann-Willenbrock, inexperienced recruits live a claustrophobic hell, sinking enemy ships and resisting constant attacks.

The film is told from the perspective of German soldiers, which makes the audience reflect on the psychological and emotional impact of war on human beings. The Submarine (Das Boot) is available on Filmin.
