The Cinematheque at the Capitol Theatre
West Germany | 1979 | Volker Schlöndorff
The Cinematheque returns to the Capitol Theatre to present a newly restored, extended version of the film that won both the Palme d’Or at the 1979 Cannes Film Festival and the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film. Filmmaker Volker Schlöndorff has restored 20 minutes of original footage that he was forced to remove 33 years ago to shorten the running time. His director’s cut expands the story of Oskar, a precocious German child living in 1920s Germany who decides to stop growing at age three when he witnesses the hypocrisy and stupidity of adult society. Not even Oskar’s piercing screams of alarm or frantic beating of a toy drum can halt his countrymen’s relentless march toward World War II. This surreal, satirical black comedy (based on the novel by Nobel Prize winner Günter Grass) was initially banned in Ontario and Oklahoma. Now it’s a widely admired modern classic.
