The Captain

The Captain [German: Der Hauptmann]

dir. Robert Schwentke (2018) [Subtitled]


A German deserter in the final weeks of the Second World War stumbles upon the uniform of a Luftwaffe captain and assumes his identity. A tense, grimly realised true story that unflaggingly defies audience expectation of some high-minded purpose behind the deception.
