  Schlöndorff's Classic On DVD [read more]
  The fantastic The Tin Drum finally released
  Volker Schlöndorff's Oscar winning film The Tin Drum is finally to get its DVD release courtesy of Nouveaux pictures.

Starring David Bennent (Legend) as Oskar, a young boy who is witness to the passivity of the German people regarding the unstoppable growth of Nazism and the decadence of his family in the world around him. Upon his third birthday Oskar is given a tin drum – something he has been promised since birth. At this point he decides to take a stand against the adult world and refuses to grow up. For the next 18 years he stays in the body of a three year old and uses his drum as a means to protest – along with a glass-shattering scream.

Schlöndorff's film is a surreal masterpiece full of unforgettable imagery, both grotesque and beautiful. Sometimes disturbing and often darkly comic, The Tin Drum is a justifiably acknowledged classic.

The Tin Drum is released on 17th November 2003 and presented in widescreen (anamorphically mastered from a newly restored print) featuring German dialogue with English subtitles, DVD extras include a brand new interview with director Volker Schlöndorff, a picture gallery and scene selection.
