Autumn, 1941: 43 young German sailors aboard U-96 enter the war against Britain. They seek adventure, respect and heroism. For them, this voyage is for glory. For their captain, a seasoned war veteran at the young age of 30, it is a mission against enemy destroyers in a blood-red sea that can devour a ship and its crew without leaving a trace. This film was inspired by actual experiences of a WWII photojournalist. 1982, 209 minutes (director's cut), MPAA rating: R (would be PG-13 if rated today) Video in German with English subtitles, DVD includes German, English, and Spanish language tracks and subtitles in English, Spanish, and French.
