The Captain from Cologne

Der Hauptmann von Köln

Directed by Slatan Dudow
East Germany, 1956


Presented in true Brecht-style, i.e. a measured and didactic satire on old and new militaristic or Nazi activities in the FRG, vaguely based on the affair about a chairman of the Sudetendeutsche Landsmannschaft.
