Kursk (Trailer)

Quote
Kursk is an English-language French-Belgian drama film directed by Thomas Vinterberg based on Robert Moore’s book A Time to Die, about the true story of the 2000 Kursk submarine disaster. It stars Matthias Schoenaerts, Colin Firth, Léa Seydoux, Peter Simonischek, Max von Sydow, Matthias Schweighöfer and Michael Nyqvist.

Looks very good.

Restoration is a perfectly valid school of magic!

You call it an accident. I call it justice.

My interest is aroused... Having read about this event.

Max von Sydow? Dude's gotta be nearly 90 now.

Anyway Jurgen Prochnow is my submarine captain.

I don't think there's anything particularly narratively interesting about the Battle of Kursk. A few awesome special effects scenes, but what's the story you tell? This has more potential to be a good movie, as opposed to a good History Channel documentary.

Not to derail things here, but do any war movies ever try to tell the actual story of a battle?  The story is always made up about the soldiers interactions with each other and character drama, with the actual battle just something happening in the background.  That Gettysburg made for TV movie in the 90's I guess tried to keep everybody narrating the flow of the battle.  That's the only one I can think of.  An attempt to show the battle of Kursk with Fury style tank realism and a writer who knows how to write great characters and dialog would be awesome (which is why it will never happen).

Edit:  Actually, I guess 'We Were Soldiers' was based around trying to recreate that specific battle.  But still, I think the point stands.  In most War movies about a battle, the story of the battle is totally secondary.

"A bridge too Far" did a fairly good job of telling the story of a battle, I think.

A lot of older post-war movies. Longest Day, Battle of Britain, Midway, Tora Tora Tora (as mentioned, a Bridge Too Far).

Anyway, a movie about a bunch of hopeless dudes dying slowly while trapped on the ocean floor in a submarine sounds pretty depressing, even by European film standards.

A lot of the older war movies focused on the main players and less on the average soldier, too.  Maybe that's why you had a better perspective on the whole battle/campaign than more modern ones where the grunts on the front lines are the stars of the film, like Band of Brothers.

I dug A time to die out of my bookshelf.  It details the Kursk accident and the aftermath in detail and there is a lot more there than a movie can cover.  Of course for the sake of drama they will spend much time with the doomed sailors.
