This is a fictionalization of the Russian submarine disaster that made world-wide news. Adapted from a book, the story runs in multiple alternating stories. Matthias Schoenaerts stars as the submarine officer who has to keep the survivors alive. Léa Seydoux co-stars as his wife, battling for information from the naval authorities who are stonewalling. Colin Firth has a bit part as a British officer, representing the international offers for help. Meanwhile, the severely underfunded Russian navy has only one ill-maintained rescue vessel, and, for political or other reasons, is resisting <more>
offers to help from various NATO countries.The underwater scenes were suitably claustrophobic. While different sometimes under-trained crew members exhibited different reactions, there was general camaraderie, as also shown in an early sequence where various underpaid crew members sell their watches to help finance a colleague's wedding.A significant bit part is the young son of Matthias Schoenaerts' character, who opens the movie practicing holding his breath underwater - a skill needed for future naval / submarine work. The kid represents the children of the whole crew.I saw this at the Toronto International Film Festival, and was surprised to see that Kursk was in English. The director reasoned that he didn't speak Russian, and the film was about various communities coming together, something that was more universal than it being just a Russian story.Note that I am reviewing this as a movie, not as to whether this is a complete historical document.
Not an entertainment movie but a good reminder how dangerous Submarines are (by Death-2-trolls)
I was able to watch the movie at the limited edition theater with a few historian war buffs and we all agreed this movie tells most if not all the main events of the Kursk. I was only 20 years old when Kursk happen and couldn't imagine some of these men about my age are stuck and drowned in the submarine and forgotten by their government by Putin. This movie is to be watched with an open mind because seriously we certainly don't know what the survivors did in the submarine but I'm sure they had high hopes of knowing rescue will come. Otherwise, this was a very sad tragedy that was <more>
marked in my lifetime just before 9/11. Other then that, this movie is true to it's core and I hope the navies of the world will take heed to prevent this from happening ever again.
It's a refreshingly honest outlook. The cinema audience went totally silent in the final part. Many sat in their seats thinking when the lights were swtiched.I particularly appreciate the acting and directing, de-facto honoring the fallen heroes with a meticulously accurate narration without the usual Hollywood mockery of the Russians. Definetely worth your time.
The movie is really good, but it does not tell the whole story. (by sergey-vasilyev2007)
The movie is really good, but it does not tell the whole story.The director explains it by telling that he wanted to show the humanity of the Kursk's crew members from one side, and the bureaucracy of the upper military officials on the other side. And that he wanted to leave the politics out of the movie. In my opinion, the director missed one important fact from the Kursk's story. As you know, the sailors in Russia are drafted to serve in NAVY. And many of them are not willing to sacrifice their lives for sake of competition between superpowers. This movie misses the fact that <more>
sailors in one sinking compartment heavily beaten their officer who closed the door between the compartments, thus preventing them to escape from the doomed compartment. This fact was discovered by investigators after reading the note found on the drown officer. I think, this fact should have been reflected in the movie, too. The second important fact is that all families of dead sailors received, first time in the history, serious monetary compensation ten-year salary and apartment for living in major Russian cities. And almost all of them accepted this compensation, and we cannot blame them for that!
An excellent made French-Belgian dramatic production. (by TheTopDawgCritic)
This film was excellent in every aspect. Directing by Thomas Vinterberg was amazing except for the annoying black edges at the start and end of the film - why? . Writing/screenplay by Robert Rodat was great. Cinematography near perfect. Casting was outstanding - as were the performances by all. The score/music was bang on. S/VFX were perfect. My only critique is that the almost 2 hour length felt longer due to some slow pacing issues. Otherwise, an excellent film that leaves an uneasy feeling in your stomach, knowing that this film is based on actual events. A well deserved 9/10 from me.
Russian language (by zallar-48707)
The move is great in my opinion must be in russian language.
A really good film with strong emotional engagement. (by timvandenbranden96)
Since it is based on the true story of the K-141 Kursk submarine disaster, we already know the end of the story. So it was a true challenge for director Thomas Vinterberg known for Jagten, Festen,... to take a special approach for his movie. He made the clear choice to focus on the emotion and the human side of this tragedy, rather than on the political side. The result is a strong movie which succeeds in dragging you into the submarine itself and it's victims and wifes . It's no coincidence that the aspect ratio shifts to wide during the whole submarine sequence and back to narrow <more>
16:9 at the beginning and conclusion of the story. Or like the director himself said at the moviepremière in Ghent, Belgium: "Well ... you should see it"
Tragedy effectively brought to the screen (by phd_travel)
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.
Can this be true? (by morten-23250)
I'm affraid quite a lot of the storry is. Not often I get offended, but here I did - how could the russians be so necklective?
