Storyline

During the night of 27th to 28th September 1994, the Swedish-Estonian ferry ESTONIA sank in the middle of the Baltic Sea. 852 people lost their lives, only 145 were saved. Until today this has remained the biggest shipping catastrophe in European waters since the end of World War II. JULIA REUTER, a journalist with a leading German television magazine in Berlin, is trying to get a scoop on military black market arms trafficking from Russia. Her investigations lead her to Tallinn in Estonia, where on the evening of September 27, 1994 she misses the ferry ESTONIA, by mere minutes. One of the vehicles on the ship is a truck loaded with high-tech weapons. ERIK WESTERMARK is a Swedish lawyer, who is coming from a sailing trip along the Estonian coast with his 10-year-old son. They were setting off for the return trip back home to Sweden, aboard the ESTONIA. But the ferry doesn't make her port of call. She sinks in the midst of the cold Baltic Sea. Erik Westermark is among the rescued. The ... Written by TOP STORY Filmproduction GmbH

An investigative reporter teams up with a bereaved father in an attempt to get at the truth behind the sinking of the 'Estonia', a real life tragedy.
16 January 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

On a vacation in Germany, we went to the Sony Center in Berlin and caught a screening of "Baltic Storm" in the original English version. I had only vaguely remembered the sinking of the 'Estonia' and was apprehensive that this would be another "Titanic" rip-off. Far from it. This film was the story of the aftermath and an enormous cover-up as to why the ferryboat sank. The story was tense, and had us guessing to till the end. (By the way, how did the filmmakers know about these so-called CIA 'black prisons'in Eastern Europe back in 2003?) Jurgen Prochnow (from "Das Boot" and Greta Scacchi ("Cotton Mary") and Donald Sutherland (from just about everything) were incredible. Awesome movie.
