The Captain Trailer
Robert Schwentke’s The Captain / Der Hauptmann (2017) movie trailer stars Max Hubacher, Milan Peschel, Frederick Lau, Bernd Hölscher, and Waldemar Kobus. The Captain‘s plot synopsis: “Based on a disturbing true story, The Captain follows Willi Herold (Max Hubacher), a German army deserter who stumbles across an abandoned Nazi captain’s uniform during the last, desperate weeks of the Third Reich. Newly emboldened by the allure of a suit that he stole only to stay warm, Willi discovers that many Germans will follow the leader, whosoever that happens to be. A parade of fresh atrocities follow in the self-declared captain’s wake, and serve as a profound reminder of the consequences of social conformity and untrammeled political power.
After an illustrious career in Hollywood, Robert Schwentke’s (RED, FLIGHTPLAN) German homecoming film THE CAPTAIN, is simultaneously a historical docudrama, a tar-black comedy, and a sociological treatise, presenting fascism as a pathetic pyramid scheme, a system to be gamed by the most unscrupulous and hollow-souled.”
This film looks beautifully shot bolstered by a compelling story.
