A German cinema legend, based on the novel by Günther Grass, awarded the Golden Palm in Cannes and the Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film in 1980. The film tells the story of an unusual childhood in Gdansk at the beginning of the 1930s. Oskar, the squirt, decides not to grow anymore because he doesn't want to become bourgeois, a hanger-on or a strict Nazi. He simply drums and screams out his anger at the world. The splintering glass panes, as well as the eels that wriggle their way out of the horse's head, the sherbet powder in Katharina Thalbach's belly button and Oskar with Maria in the beach cubicle – all these are now legendary...

Director's Biography:Born in Wiesbaden in 1939. He has made more than thirty films and television plays, staged operas and plays, for which he has been awarded major national and international prizes.Photo: © DFF - Deutsches Filminstitut & Filmmuseum
