Ship collision - that is going to leave a mark

An interesting short video of two freighters colliding in the Strait of Singapore. I know how busy this area is. It seemed that half of the vessels we saw in the Indian Ocean were going to Singapore. I found it interesting at the very beginning of the video there are no warnings being sounded by anyone even though they were so close. Guessing that there was negligent watch-standing on both boats. Also could not figure out where the video was being shot from. Seemed too steady for a helicopter or small plane. Anyone translate the Italian comments?
