The story of the new high end series "Das Boot" begins in the fall of 1942, at a time when, in the midst of World War II, submarine warfare was becoming ever more brutal. The plot follows a young submarine crew on a dangerous surveillance mission, as the Résistance begins to gain influence at the French port of La Rochelle. During the Autumn of 1942, in occupied France, U-612 is now ready for its maiden voyage, preparing to head into the increasingly brutal warfare with its young crewmen, including the new commander, Klaus Hoffmann (Rick Okon). As the 40 young men take on their first mission, they struggle with the cramped and claustrophobic conditions of life underwater. Their personalities are pushed to the limit as tensions rise and loyalties begin to shatter. Meanwhile, at the port of La Rochelle, the world of Simone Strasser (Vicky Krieps) spirals out of control as she is engulfed in a dangerous liaison and forbidden love, torn between her loyalty for Germany and the Résistance, ...
It's about life in the German kriegsmarine...about another submarine
Only watched first 2 episodes, but I am hooked :) I guess the name is to honor the famous movie, as the way of life in a German submarine :) I am here for it, and can't wait for the next episode. It's very well done, following a fresh new crew with hardly any experience as replacement for all the losses Germans had, but with the newest submarine in 1942.
The movie Das Boot is a masterpiece, and watch it if you can. I think directors cut is about 4,5 hours long, but there is an 8-9 hour version too, but I haven't seen it/ found it.
This is not Das Boot, it's another boat, but they have used some of the scripts from Das Boot, as underlaying material...that is not a bad thing, but good, and I also liked they used the famous music too :)
