Die Blechtrommel = The tin drum by Volker Schlöndorff( Visual )

207 editions published between 1978 and 2017 in 6 languages and held by 2,009 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Novelist Gunter Grass assisted in this brilliant film adaptation of his groundbreaking novel, which depicts the horrors of two world wars in Germany via the brazen gaze of a very special young boy. Frustrated by the lies and hypocrisies that surround him, three year-old Oskar resorts to breaking glass with his shrill voice and banging relentlessly on his tin drum. With the fascists rising-up in his Polish-German hometown of Danzig, and the events leading up to the onslaught of Nazism coming to a head, Oskar is determined to boycott the adult world and remain a child forever.Vividly portrayed by the diminutive David Bennet, and brilliantly directed by master of the New German cinema, Volker Schlondorff, Oskar's epic coming-of-age story is a milestone of European film, and deservedly won top prize at Cannes and the Academy Awards

The parisian schoolteacher, Charles Simon, leaves Paris after a family tragedy bound for Berg Khan Tengri, by car and then on foot. He refuses offers for a ride and in time it becomes apparent that he is journeying to Khan Tengri, not for spiritual enlightenment, as might be expected, but to find a rumored cache of gold. He is soon joined in his quest by two eccentrics: a Kazakhstani woman named Ulzhat, who teaches French at a local village school, and Shakuni, a hippie-turned-shaman from western Europe
The tin drum by Günter Grass( Book )

7 editions published between 1979 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An intellectually challenging, visually stunning parable of modern society in violent transition--as narrated by Oskar Matzerath, one of the most unforgettably unique heroes of our time. Oskar is born into a world he never made and he hates what he sees. At three, decides to stop growing, then and there, and remain a three-year-old, alone, once and for all. The next two terrible decades of feast and famine, fascism and slaughter, he remains frozen in size, suspended in the outraged innocence of childhood. Oskar has two weapons to see him through the ordeal of modern history: his tin drum, which he bangs to drown out horror and hypocrisy, and his childish voice raised in a shriek piercing enough to break glass

Il tamburo di latta by David Bennent( Visual )

4 editions published between 1979 and 2005 in Italian and Undetermined and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Oscar nasce a Danzica, nel 1924. Agnès è sposata con il droghiere Alfred Matzerath, tedesco, ma è anche amante del cugino polacco Jan Bronski e il bambino può essere suo. Oscar, piuttosto precoce, alla festa del suo terzo compleanno decide di isolarsi dagli adulti che lo hanno stomacato e decide di rimanere minuscolo. Il fenomeno fisico, inspiegabile per la famiglia e per i clinici interpellati, viene un poco alla volta accettato e, nel frattempo, Oscar scopre due proprie singolari doti: quella di dare fastidio e anche terrorizzare con il suono del tamburo di latta che porta perennemente a tracolla; e quella di possedere una voce stridula con toni ad alta frequenza, capace di rompere vetri e cristalli. Quando le cose non vanno a suo genio, l'eterno ragazzino usa le sue armi: così, un giorno, ridicolizza una grande parata nazista che prelude allo scoppio della II Guerra Mondiale. Sigismond Marcus, un venditore di giocattoli, è suo grande amico e lo vedrà suicida dopo l'occupazione tedesca. L'occupazione era avvenuta il primo settembre 1939 con la nota tragica messa in scena nazista ed era stata seguita dalla resistenza nel palazzo della Posta ove Jan veniva preso e fucilato. Morta la madre, Oscar segue il circo di Bebra e di Roswitha Raguna di cui diviene l'amante. Tornato a Danzica, assiste all'arrivo della giovane servetta polacca Maria che Alfred rende madre. All'arrivo dei sovietici, involontariamente Oscar provoca anche la morte del padre
