Winner of the Palme d’Or and Best Foreign Language Film Academy Award, Schlöndorff and screenwriter Jean-Claude Carrière’s visionary adaptation of Günter Grass’s anti-coming-of-age novel tracks young Oscar, a brilliant child who rejects adulthood as the mad world around him lurches toward WWII. This definitive cut restores the 20 minutes of footage removed by the original distributor.

A film by Volker Schlöndorff
