Submarine movies: suggestions needed

Hi,

I REALLY like submarine movies. I like the claustrophobic sensation, the hunt of the destroyer they are about to sink, the escape from the depth charges,...

Can you recommend me some good submarine movies? They don't need to be in the English language, if you know some good foreign ones either.

I have seen the like of (and many more, but I have a brain freeze right now, so I cannot give you an exhaustive list):
- Hunt for Red October
- Das Boot
- K19
- Below

What are your recommendations.

Das Boot and Hunt for RO are the best, imo.

The Abyss is not submarine per-se, but it does have the submarine atmosphere and feel.


Also... 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea

Strange-like. Last two movies I bought were Atragon and Ice Station Zebra. Both keep putting me to sleep after 20 minutes.

Although it doesn't help that I keep putting them on at about midnight.

If you want to go old school, I'd suggest Delmer Daves' Destination Tokyo (1943), featuring Cary Grant and John Garfield.

On the Beach has a little submarine action in it. Not a lot though.
