Trivia

The character Franz Gruber is very loosely based on Wallace Hartley, who was also the main violinist of the Titanic band. Also the character has a similar look as Hartley. However while Gruber survived the tragedy, Hartley died on the Titanic in the age of 34. See more »

Not as bad as expected
18 March 1999 | by HörnlaSee all my reviews

Look out for the scene when Petersen forces his Ex to enter the lifeboat and then guess who watched this movie quite carefully...James Cameron maybe? To put it short, if you are able to substract the propaganda and the resulting errors, it is better than the 1953-US version, especially regarding the special effects. Could anyone check out which ship "doubled" the Titanic? If it really is the "Gustloff" then we have a case of very bitter irony here...
