The claustrophobic world of a WWII German U-boat; boredom, filth and sheer terror.
Vigo is a coastal city in the Galician province in northern Spain. Two U-boats, U-506 and U-523, are reported to have been sunk near Vigo during the Second World War.
Out boatswain's mate. Been on quite a bender tonight.
During the first encounter with a convoy, a lieutenant (the one who wears a sweater) gets out of bed with his hair a mess and in his face. After he climbs to the bridge in the next shot, his hair is perfectly combed and out of his face. This clearly indicates he owns and knows how to use a comb.
On the DVD release the subtitle content is significantly different from the version shown on cable. Hitler is not disparaged the same way at the going away bash for example.
