Plot

Danzig in the 1920s/1930s. Oskar Matzerath, son of a local dealer, is a most unusual boy. Equipped with full intellect right from his birth he decides at his third birthday not to grow up as he sees the crazy world around him at the eve of World War II. So he refuses the society and his tin drum symbolizes his protest against the middle-class mentality of his family and neighborhood, which stand for all passive people in Nazi Germany at that time. However, (almost) nobody listens to him, so the catastrophe goes on...
 

Comments

Really bad "Blechtrommel" is a pointless German movie with a bizarre story. The actors is OK, but the story in the film seams to have as a goal to shock the audience in a repulsing way. Hidden behind a known author and some surrealism this seams to work for a few people (specially those who think they understand movies). I remember I saw this movie for the first time for about 10-11 years ago and I really disliked it. Now, 10 years after (and about 2000 movies ago), I saw it once again to see if I could get some more out of the movie than the first time, but that did not happen. A bad and pointless movie .
