Storyline

Building the Titanic has been a huge financial effort, and White Star Line president Ismay wants her maiden voyage to hit the headlines. He urges Captain Smith to make the fastest possible crossing to New York. When iceberg warnings come in, the captain must ask himself if he is willing to risk the safety of his ship just to please Ismay. Written by Wilhelm Noeker <wnoeker@t-online.de>

Goofs

It is stated in the movie that the Titanic was the fastest liner in the world, and that she was traveling at 26 1/2 knots near the beginning of the voyage. The Titanic could only travel at 23 knots, and she never traveled at her top speed before her sinking. Besides this, the RMS Mauretania was capable of 27 knots, so 26 1/2 wouldn't have been enough to beat her. See more »

Quotes

John Jacob Astor: [Lord Douglas is appealing to him for a loan] Those to whom you owe millions can't let you go under.
Lord Douglas: All the more reason for you to lend me the money.
John Jacob Astor: I don't lend money. I'd rather give it away. But since I'm no great apostle of charity, I don't give it away either.

Not as bad as expected
18 March 1999 | by (Münster, Germany) – See all my reviews

Look out for the scene when Petersen forces his Ex to enter the lifeboat and then guess who watched this movie quite carefully...James Cameron maybe? To put it short, if you are able to substract the propaganda and the resulting errors, it is better than the 1953-US version, especially regarding the special effects. Could anyone check out which ship "doubled" the Titanic? If it really is the "Gustloff" then we have a case of very bitter irony here...
