Film History 101: The Tin Drum
Film History 101: The Tin Drum |
In this visionary adaptation of Gnter GrassŐs acclaimed novel, a highly intelligent three-year-old decides to stop aging in protest of the hypocrisy of adulthood and society.
Caught in a state of perpetual childhood, he lashes out on 1920s Danzig with frantic poundings on his tin drum while the rest of the world marches toward the folly of World War II. An unforgettable fantasia of surreal imagery, striking eroticism, and unflinching satire.
Winner of the Palme dŐOr at the Cannes Film Festival and the Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film (the first German film to receive this honor), this classic of world cinema is now restored to the directorŐs intended vision, including 20 minutes of footage not seen since the original distributor requested them cut. (163 mins., 2K DCP)
