Another bad TV History Drama
26 November 2006 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

Like the bombing of Dresden or the great flood of Hamburg, the sinking of the Pamir gives the background for a 3 hour German TV production. The usual love story, the usual bad guy, the usual heroes. The plot is not historically correct, more fiction than facts. The sinking of the Pamir was a real event, 80 sailors died. They should have used a fictional ship for a fictional story. The producers tried very hard to include something for everybody and the result is a bad compromise. The weather on the outside scenes and even the special effects storm sequences almost never fits the situation. Why still 4 out of 10? Because most of the actors deliver a good performance. If you want to see a wet movie try "Das Boot" or "Perfect Storm" and don't waste your time with "Pamir".
