The film begins in the 1980s Soviet Union. Two best friends, Orlov and Muravyev, are serving at the Black Sea Navy Base in Sevastopol, Crimea. Both fall in love with one beautiful girl Nelly, and their friendship suffers a first blow. Because she picks Muravyev, his friend Orlov struggles with an inferiority complex and becomes a secretive alcoholic. After the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991, both friends are transferred to the Northern Fleet on the Polar Ocean. One day their sub is performing a routine training. A disturbed WWII mine slowly moves on a collision course with the sub. A mighty blast knocks down everyone inside the wrecked sub, 72 meters below the sea level. Then ensues a nerve-racking struggle for survival. Written by
I have seen an advertisment on TV and went to see this film in cinema. And i was shocked - this is really good film with good playing of all actors. This film is provided by Mariccone's music that help the film to be more pretty. I can't say it is action nor comedy. No, it is well-made drama with an atmosphere of the best films, No, it has its own atmosphere - sad, but sometimes funny. The film to think, and to hope, the film to cry and believe in a better life. This is good film about strong mans. I was depressed for some time but when I saw the film the depression left me. I think forever. I hope, 72 metres would be well-comented and become one of the best films in imdb. Big thanks to creators of this film and good kuck to restorated cinema of Russia!
I advice this film to everybody 10/10.
