Description


Even before his birth, Oskar Matzerath, in his mother’s womb, realizes he has special gifts. One is breaking glass with his voice; another is the decision at three years of age not to grow another inch due to the lies and hypocrisies that surround him. This is a chronicle on the history of Germany from the beginning of this century (the film’s introductory part before Oskar is born) up to 1959, with a special emphasis on the Polish-German city of Danzig where polish Resistance fighters deflected the perils of Nazism. As Oskar, diminutive David Bennent (then a boy of 12 hindered in his own growth) has the piercing eyes and remarkable acting talent to singlehandedly carry this epic coming-of-age story.
