Trivia

This is the fourth film starring Matthias Schoenaerts whose score was composed by Alexandre Desplat. The others are Rust and Bone (2012), Suite Française (2014) (Desplat composed the theme for Schoenaerts' character, not the whole score) and The Danish Girl (2015). See more »

Goofs

27 minutes into the film (the explosions already have happened), while the survivors scramble for solutions, Mikhail (the main character) shouts orders to another compartment, using what is supposed to be an intercom, a red box mounted to the sub's bulkhead. The box is in fact an American World-War 2 military VHF receiver, model BC-603. It was used by the American Signal Corps. The original color is army-green, but the props department painted it red.

Keys On Preventable Human Tragedy...Straightforward & Simply Told
3 March 2019 | by AudioFileZSee all my reviews

Most know about the Kursk incident yet know little otherwise. A terrible Cold War accident in which one of Russia's cutting edge subs sank due to an internal explosion - with survivors. The surviving crew was detected by the Russians who wouldn't ask for crucial help in the short window of saving those still alive. Expected? Well it's not a project such as The International Space Station - vastly different long-standing veils of secrecy dictate the Russian's inept posturing and faulty decisions. This is the story we haven't, mostly, been aware of. It's chilling as it depicts the human cost. This movie seems to pull few punches and doesn't bow to Hollywood-like bombast. It isn't meant to entertain so much as to enlighten with respectful homage given the crew. It succeeds and is a film that is easy to highly recommend.
