Shane Van Dyke,
The plot focuses on the romances of two couples upon the doomed ship's maiden voyage. Isabella Paradine (Catherine Zeta-Jones) is a wealthy woman mourning the loss of her aunt, who reignites a romance with former flame Wynn Park (Peter Gallagher). Meanwhile, a charming ne'er-do-well named Jamie Perse (Mike Doyle) steals a ticket for the ship, and falls for a sweet innocent Irish girl on board. But their romance is threatened by the villainous Simon Doonan (Tim Curry), who has discovered about the ticket and makes Jamie his unwilling accomplice, as well as having sinister plans for the girl.

The lines Captain Smith recites on the bridge, "Low, low, breathe and blow / Wind of the western sea / Over the rolling waters go / Come from the dying moon, and blow" are from the poem "The Princess: Sweet and Low" by Alfred Lord Tennyson. See more »
Although it was already pointed out that the dining room was located on A deck, instead of D DECK, it is later shown that Jimmy Perse and Simon Doonan are looking at the dining room through the boat deck windows. See more »

Okay, before I start, I love the MOVIE Titanic, by James Cameron. I brought this DVD by mistake and ended up liking it. It really is a good movie/mini-series. It pales in comparison to the movie, but it is very enjoyable.
It is very down-to-earth. It has a more realistic take on the whole disaster. It dosn't just show you one random love story between two strangers, but a more varied plot-line.
However, It is kind of confusing to follow but overall, 8 out of 10.
(P.S. The cast is great, especially Tim Curry & Marilu Henner....all of the cast gave amazing performances)
