THE CAP­TAIN (15)

Hayes & Harlington Gazette - - Film Reviews -

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.
