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. Simultaneously a historical docudrama, a tar-black comedy, and a sociological treatise, The Captain presents fascism as a pathetic pyramid scheme, a system to be gamed by the most unscrupulous and hollow-souled.

While I personally am not a fan of war films, I was intrigued to see this one. I must admit that I am not a big fan of the European version, but this one is a bit different. We see many moments of the war in Germany and the British occupation of Germany. I found this a very interesting film, with some very powerful scenes. I am really glad that I saw it, because it gave me a better understanding of the period and the war.

I was not a huge fan of the movie. But I think this movie is great. I would say it is about the same as 'Born on the Fourth of July'. But I am going to watch it again. I think you should not watch this movie if you are into history and anything about World War II. This is a very complex movie. If you don't like that it is not a good movie to watch. It is a good movie to watch if you want to see a movie about World War II. I think you should not watch this movie if you are not interested in World War II.

I was very pleased with this film. The movie portrayed the horrors of the holocaust in an interesting way. It was a slow burn and you had to pay attention to see it through. I was also very impressed with the actors and actresses. The dialogue was realistic and it was never hard to figure out what was going on. The movie was very well made and the set and costume design was superb. I think this movie will be in my personal library. I give this movie an 8 out of 10.

This is not a movie about a German army, the German army is not even mentioned. The movie is about a German army and what happened when that army was forced to fight for a country that was trying to steal the German Reich. The acting is superb, the cast is very strong and the movie flows very well. The movie is not the best German movie ever made but is definitely one of the better ones that I have seen.

A faithful representation of the war. One of the most touching movies I have ever seen, and a reminder that the war is not over yet.

I have always been fascinated by war. And the movie 'Der Hauptmann' has been on my top ten list of films ever since I first saw it in the late 1990's. I didn't expect the movie to have such a large effect on me. It's almost impossible to explain how much I love this movie. It's a wonderful work of art. It's the most powerful war movie ever made. The movie is well-acted, the setting is realistic, the acting is superb, and the actors have all the skill to show us their emotions. I know that I've seen it many times. And I love every single moment of it. The movie is so true to life. No matter what you think of the war, the movie shows you that the Germans were a cruel people. They hated all who opposed them, and that's why they acted so savagely. The movie shows how they did it, how they massacred a whole town, a whole family, a whole village, and how they got their revenge. The movie also shows the true reason for the war. It shows the lack of education in the Nazi leadership, the unspeakable horrors of the war, and how it affected millions of people, millions of children. There's no other way to describe the powerful effect this movie has on me. I would like to make a special mention to Bruno Ganz as the Major. I love him in every movie he appears in. The movie is truly a masterpiece. A masterpiece of the best kind. It's a beautiful, inspiring, horrifying, moving, and a real masterpiece. If you haven't seen it, then you have to see it. It's an excellent movie, a masterpiece of the best kind.

I've seen many reviews here that bash this film for a lack of historical accuracy. It's easy to do that with a movie like this one. It's not just that the acting is good, it's the writing. The writing was a perfect balance between history and emotion. If you don't know the history of the German wars in World War 2, this movie will change your view. This is a great movie that I'd recommend to everyone. It doesn't glorify the Germans or the war, but instead shows the true horror and chaos of the war. One thing I didn't like about the film was that the Germans were shown as evil, which was a bit too much. I would have liked it if they were shown as people that really didn't care about anyone, but just wanted to defend themselves. There is a little bit of sexism in the film, but the acting is so great that it doesn't really matter. I don't know if the film was made in the 60's, but this movie was made in the 90's. It shows that war is terrible and horrible, and that's what this film is about. I recommend this movie to anyone, and I would recommend this movie to anyone.

If you are interested in the first half of the 20th century, you should definitely check out this movie. I was intrigued when I saw the poster and the trailer, so I decided to check it out. I was very surprised, but was also very pleased with the movie. This is one of the better WWII movies that I have seen in a while. The actors did a great job with the roles they were given. I felt that the movie was realistic and realistic, and was also very compelling. The acting was good, and the acting was great. I liked how the movie showed the soldiers' lives, their friends and family, and their successes and failures. I think this movie was well done, and was one that I would definitely recommend.

At times, this film can be almost unbearable. The cast does a great job and makes it all the more interesting to see what is happening to the characters as time goes on. Unfortunately, the film is almost too long. The plot, for example, has a lot of information, but it never really gets the audience to focus on any one scene. That is a shame because the actors and the director do a great job of building the tension and creating the drama. The film is a well done historical drama with many memorable scenes. However, if you are the type who likes a historical drama, then this one is not for you. I give this film 8/10.

A German officer is captured by the Nazis and escapes. He is taken to a concentration camp in Poland, where he is experimented on by the SS. His memories are erased and he finds himself a victim of the Nazis. The rest of the film is about the process of discovery and recovery. It is a great movie and I recommend it to anyone who wants to see it. There are many twists and turns in the story and it is one of those movies that you may not be able to predict the outcome of. I think it is one of the most important movies ever made. It was the first German movie to be shown in the United States. It is a must see. It is also a great movie for the entire family to watch. It is a great movie that should be shown in schools to teach the importance of the Holocaust.
