Storyline

Kaspar Heidelbach's two-part drama focuses on the 1957 sinking of the Pamir, a German sailing ship, from the angle of three crew members. After his wife's death, former sailor Acki Lüders decides to sign up on the Pamir, whose first officer is his good friend Hans Ewald. As Captain Ludwig Lewerenz's ways of treating and educating the young crew are very strict, the three men have an often strained relationship. When the shipping company puts pressure on Lewerenz after problems in Bueno Aires, he decides to sail although the ship isn't stable... Written by fippi2000

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".
