See this film: The Tin Drum @ the Brattle

Combine Peter Pan with the horrors of World War II and you might get something like Volker Schlöndorff's Oscar-winning adaptation of Günter Grass's The Tin Drum (1979). In it, a little boy recognizes the cruel absurdity of the world, refuses to grow up, and beats the title instrument to annoy the hell out of everyone. A restored version screens Friday, January 4 through Tuesday, January 8 at the Brattle Theatre.
