An awesome film.
26 February 2019 | by searchanddestroy-1See all my reviews

As far as I know, there has never been any French movie speaking of submarines. And if there is one in the future, it will never be as excellent as this one. Impossible. This one is the first and will remain the best, whatever other features may bring. It's proudly in the line of HUNT FOR RED OCTOBER or James B Harris BEDFORD INCIDENT, starring Richard Widmark and Sidney Poitier, with also a bit of Sid Lumet's FAILSAFE. Great acting, editing, directing, with tons of details and accuracy in every domain of submarines. A riveting, breath taking movie with a very dark atmosphere and an ending that Hollywood film industry will never give us anymore. Go for it. Some errors about the casting though. But who cares?
