The Tin Drum (Die Blechtrommel, 1979)
Fates from the density of new German cinema
Wicked, ironic and shocking. Schlöndorff adapted Günter Grass's 1959 novel into a film, but in the two decades that had passed since the novel was published - as well as the four decades that have passed since the film was released - the ideas in the work have remained undissipated. A film told through a child's eyes. Although quite a few of these have been made, Oskar Matzerath, the main character of The Tin Drum, stands out from the crowd as his observations of the world from below are coupled with the power and possibility of magically changing it. At the age of three, little Oskar decides not to grow up any more, but instead intervenes in the course of events - with his devastating scream and, if necessary, by means of his dwarfish devilishness. This is one of the toughest works in New German Cinema we are dealing with.
In German, with Hungarian subtitles.
The discussions before and after the screening will be conducted in Hungarian.
