The tin drum by Volker Schlndorff( Visual )

40 editions published between 1979 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 262 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A partir de la novela homónima del Premio Nobel Gunter Grass, "El Tambor de Hojalata" es una terrible pesadilla sin retorno, con la imparable ascensión del nazismo como telón de fondo. El filme arranca en el año 1927, en la ciudad de Danzig. Allí, el pequeño e inteligentísimo Oskar Matzerath va a cumplir tres años y ese mismo día decide que no crecerá más, como protesta contra un mundo que no le gusta, a partir de ese momento se dedicará a hacer sonar sin tregua su pequeño tambor de hojalata y a proferir estridentes y agudos gritos, capaces de hacer estallar los cristales, con el fin de que los adultos se percaten de que desperdician el mundo que están forjando. A lo largo de dos horas y media, Volker Schlondorff denuncia con mucho humor negro, la sinrazón, el fanatismo y la intolerancia que se adueñaron de su país durante casi dos décadas. Y lo hace utilizando un leit motiv claramente metafórico, porque ese tambor que aporrea sin piedad el protagonista, viene a representar todos los

He's worried for her, and offers to drive her to Rome. Along the way, his concern becomes romance, and romance leads to tragedy

Die Brücke= the bridge by Manfred Gregor( Visual )

2 editions published in 2015 in German and held by 248 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"... the first major antiwar film to come out of Germany after World War II, as well as the nation's first postwar film to be widely shown internationally, even securing an Oscar nomination. Set near the end of the conflict, it follows a group of teenage boys in a small town as they contend with everyday matters like school, girls, and parents, before enlisting as soldiers and being forced to defend their home turf in a confused, terrifying battle. This expressively shot, emotionally bruising drama dared to humanize young German soldiers at a historically tender moment"--Container
