The Captain (15)
Dir: Robert Schwentke
Cast: Jakob Cedergren, Jessica Dinnage, Omar Shargawi
Ger/Pol, 2017, 119 mins, German dialogue with subtitles
World War II drama based on the true story of Willy Herold, the Executioner of Emplaned, who, after deserting the German army finds a Nazi captain’s uniform and subsequently pretends to be a soldier of that rank. A thought-provoking parable of how even the smallest people can become corrupted when suddenly given authoritarian power to wield.
