Product Description

Oskar is born in Germany in 1924 with an advanced intellect. Repulsed by the hypocrisy of adults and the irresponsibility of society, he refuses to grow older after his third birthday. While the chaotic world around him careers toward the madness and folly of World War II, Oskar pounds incessantly on his beloved tin drum and perfects his uncannily piercing shrieks. The Tin Drum, which earned the Palme d’Or at Cannes and the Academy Award for best foreign-language film, is a visionary adaptation from Volker Schlöndorff (Young Törless) of Nobel laureate Günter Grass’s acclaimed novel, characterized by surreal imagery, arresting eroticism, and clear-eyed satire.

5.0 out of 5 stars watched 3 times to adapt to the mistakes the woman made and the alcoholism of the family/ friends.
By Conor Ripley R on April 15, 2015
I wrote a review last night- short-brief. Here goes - again. Didn't get through?

Tin Drum: Wasn't a pity party for "God's chosen tribe" , thank goodness, there are plenty of those types of films for some odd reason. It was however erected masterfully with a story that shows a hidden but acceptable 1st cousin to cousin sexual/ romantic relationship. With Alfred (dad in the movie) pretending not to be aware of the relationship between his wife and her Pollack sympathizing cousin, who was to me, very effeminate and understanding of a woman's feelings, unlike the husband Alfred who was not aware , ignorant, of his wife's needs - which were so vast only a man who could be there for every finite whim could please her.

ALFRED on the other hand was concrete, cut dry and predictable, but he was a pleaser in the social light and in private. He was a chef at first by trade at a hospital. He knew how to swoon in the beginning, but couldn't quite keep his grip on the "bring me the moon types" of women whom he managed to acquire, especially the young one who took the place of his dead wife later on in the film.

YOUNG WIFE (MARIE): Unaware at first. Experimenting in her sexuality to find it caused problems after sleeping with dad and son. THAT'S RIGHT (she makes innocent love with son) and relationship / financial securing sex /love making with the dad. I guess that's what could have occurred in those times when women were ( fill in the blank) I'm no pro feminist or a men's rights advocate, but things seemed easier for Alfred. Now day.s Alfred would've had to get back into the dating scene or import an Asian /foreign bride in order to acquire a beautiful girl like Marie ( still with all the extra baggage ). Marie was a good hard worker and took care of the family - keeping secret that a son was either born from Oskar or possibly impotent Alfred.

Oskar was played by David Bennent who's acting skills are charming. He is the lens in which you view the film, and it is here where I will not input details of his character and outlook on his life other than he stops growing at a certain age (some form of dwarfism) late onset dwarfism? He also has a tallent which keeps him out of school and instead homeschooling was used for Oskar. Oskar chose two philosophies to inspire his forethought and became less judgmental during his life. Although he knew when things were not going well for others. One thing in the film which I find as a effective and "not convenience plot" or forced, was Oskar's claim to fame , Oskar discovered that when he shrieked, he emitted a powered high frequency which could penetrate thin glass in the direction which he threw his voice. I find this as a take it with a grain of salt, enjoy it, laugh at it moment, or moments , Oskar uses his shrieking skills in the filmat least 15 times and it is not annoying. It is fun and enhances the movie.

Other than that great movie from my youth.
