View Website

Volker Schlöndorff and Jean-Claude Carrière present the digitally restored director's cut of their Academy Award– and Cannes Palme d'Or–winning film, which features 30 previously unseen minutes that flesh out several characters and sequences (most notably that of Mazerath, the Nazi sympathizer who has a sudden reversal of conscience; a critical scene with Fajngold, the Treblinka survivor; and an imaginary orgy at the court of St. Petersburg). The Tin Drum is a dance of death, a grotesque vision of lost childhood and the rise of Nazism. Carrière observes, "It is, first of all, a realistic film, deeply rooted in the Danzig lower middle-class, with its pettiness, its fears and, at times, with a certain grandeur.
