Subtitling reviews:

Submitted by baldbilluk on 20th February 2006:
Well subtitled"Make sure that you have the version with the correct catalogue number and barcode as a previous version of this film has a similar box and does not come with subtitles so as forewarned please check both numbers. There was only the film to be viewed (no extra features) and it has English subtitles for hearing impaired. Happy viewing!!!!!"

Based on: A true story

Story: The penultimate film from the celebrated teaming of Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger ('Black Narcissus', 'A Matter of Life and Death') tells the true story of the famous 1939 naval battle.

When the British cruisers manage to trap the powerful German ship in the Uruguayan harbour of Montevideo, they attempt to trick Langsdorff into believing that an entire battle fleet is waiting to destroy his vessel at sea.
