Great submarine movie
23 July 2007 | by (Poland) – See all my reviews

Based on a true story of Polish submarine "Orzel" (The Eagle): September 1939, "Orzel" is coming to Estonian neutral harbor in Tallin. Under pressure from Germany Estonians have intern the ship. Commander Grabinski decides to escape to England through the Baltic Sea, without any maps that has been confiscated and with only small amount of fuel on board. They sneak out of Tallin during the night and begin their journey through Baltic Sea dominated by German Navy.

The story of "Orzel" is one of the most bravest episodes of Polish Navy during the World War II and the movie is one of the best submarine movies in history (more realistic than American titles like "Run silent, run deep" or "Torpedo run"). Most of the scenes were shot on Orzel's twin - "Sep" (The Vulture).
