Tragedy effectively brought to the screen
19 February 2019 | by phd_travelSee all my reviews

If you ever felt claustrophobic in a submarine tour this movie would be quite distressing. Seeing the cold dark wet and suffering they endured makes you wonder why anyone would voluntarily have a life on a sub. The true story of the Kursk tragedy is vividly brought to the screen by Luc Besson.

It's so frustrating how the responsible people delayed accepting help that could have saved them.

Matthias looks like a famous Russian so good casting. Lea Seydoux even looks fat for the role of pregnant wife.

Worth a watch.
