Appeared in Library Journal on 2004-07-01:
A three-year-old boy literally refuses to grow up, banging on his tin drum and shrieking in a glass-shattering tone to protest the hypocrisy in his own family and society and the rise of Nazism. A haunting, often dreamlike, realistic fantasy, Volker Schlandorff's superb adaptation of the Gunter Grass novel is among the best foreign films ever made. This terrific two-disc package includes documentaries, deleted scenes, commentary, and more. Essential. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
