Men on the Sea Floor (Italian:Uomini sul fondo) is a 1941 Italian drama film directed by Francesco De Robertis. De Robertis specialised in semi-documentary films, in this case portraying the crew of an Italian submarine trapped after an accident. De Robertis's technique of using non-actors in roles has been credited as an influence on the development of Italian neorealism.
It was known as SOS Submarine.
The film was released in the US in 1948 with dubbed English.
