THE CAPTAIN (15)
DRAMA based on a true story. In the final weeks of the Second World War before the collapse of Hitler’s troops, army deserter Willi Herold (Max Hubacher) goes on the run for his life. He finds an abandoned car and a full military uniform, which fits him snugly. Willi decides to pass himself off as a captain and convinces locals of his station by shooting a looter. As Willi’s confidence grows and he adopts the arrogance and cool detachment befitting the uniform, he marches into an army detention camp and claims he has been sent by Hitler to spearhead a secret mission. ■ Available to download/stream and on DVD from October 1.
