Adapted from Günter Grass’ groundbreaking novel, The Tin Drum depicts the horrors of two world wars in Germany via the brazen gaze of a young boy.
Frustrated by the lies and hypocrisies that surround him, three year-old Oskar is determined to boycott the adult world and remain a child forever. Vividly portrayed by the diminutive David Bennet, and brilliantly directed by master of the New German cinema, Volker Schlöndorff, Oskar's epic coming-of-age story is a milestone of European film.
