The Tin Drum (Die Blechtrommel)
This movie cleaned up all the awards that year. It's amazing, inspiring, but not for the faint of heart :)
The Tin Drum (Die Blechtrommel) Directed By: Volker Schlondorff (Germany, 1979, 163 mins, DCP)Oskar is born in Germany in 1924 with an advanced intellect. Repulsed by the hypocrisy of adults and the irresponsibility of society, he refuses to grow older after his third birthday. While the chaotic world around him careers toward the madness and folly of World War II, Oskar pounds on his beloved tin drum. This visionary adaptation of the acclaimed novel by Nobel laureate Gunter Grass is characterized by surreal imagery, arresting eroticism, and clear-eyed satire.
