Das Boot, which is simply one of the best German movies ever made, is the tale of a 50-strong German submarine crew during the Second World War. The movie is a true emotional rollercoaster, starting with a strong portrayal of the intense boredom the submariners often experience. But the moment enemy vessels appear on the horizon, boredom soon gives way to fear and the longing to be berthed in their home harbor. This brilliantly executed piece of cinematic claustrophobia received no fewer than six Oscar nominations, more than any German movie ever!
