During the final weeks of WWII, German army deserter Max Hubacher stumbles upon a discarded Nazi captain’s uniform that provides more than just immediate warmth. Assuming the authoritative gestures suggested by the outfit— and claiming to be on a mission on orders from the Führer—he finds people are willing to follow his commands. Stylishly shot in black and white, Robert Schwentke’s film marks a welcome return to the veteran director’s native Germany where he delivers a blackly comic social parable. A Music Box Films release
