30 October 2000 | Vilhjálmur
Almost completely unsentimental (hooray!) portrayal of the life of those aboard a British corvette, HMS Compass Rose, during the Battle of the Atlantic. Jack Hawkins magnificent as its captain. Some harrowing scenes filmed with great reserve.

Easily the best film dealing with war at sea. Only "Das Boot" comes close.
