Die Blechtrommel

Volker Schlöndorff West Germany, 1979

James Mackin's rating of the film The Tin Drum

A young child in Weimar Germany, who's much more intelligent than all the adults around him, decides to stop growing, so he may enjoy his life playing his tin drum all the time. This is also a black comedy.
