U-900 is a 2008 German comedy movie directed by Sven Unterwaldt. Essen, 1944. Black market trader Atze Schröder and his buddy Samuel hope for an early invasion of the Americans so that the war ends. But a chain of unfortunate circumstances ensures a hasty escape, which also joins actress Maria. It ends on the last available German submarine, the U-900, which is hijacked by the trio. The crew, however, is on a secret mission. The film mainly parodies the 1981 movie Das Boot.
