The Tin Drum (Die Blechtrommel)
Cert: 15 Year: 1979 Length: 142 mins Language: German
Mario Adorf, Angela Winkler, David Bennent.
Based on Gunther Grass's novel, The Tin Drum echoes the rise and fall of the Third Reich through the eyes of Oskar, who, appalled by the insanity of the (adult) world around him, decided to stop growing at the age of three and to bang on a tin drum. This at times absurd and grotesque film counts as one of the stellar achievements of German cinema since World War II.
Oscar for Best Foreign Film, 1980
Joint Palme d'Or Winner (with Apocalypse Now), Cannes 1979
It's still a work of great inflammatory power, bizarre visuals and a passion!
