"Danzig, 1924. Oskar Matzerath is born with an intellect beyond his infancy. As he witnesses the hypocrisy of adulthood and the irresponsibility of society, Oskar rejects both, and, on his third birthday, refuses to grow. Caught in a baffling state of perpetual childhood, Oskar lashes out at all he surveys with piercing screams and frantic poundings on his tin drum, while the unheeding, chaotic world marches onward to the madness and folly of World War II."--Container

Chronicle of Anna Magdalena Bach by Jean-Marie Straub( Visual )

1 edition published in 1968 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This is a documentary reflection on the last 27 years of Johann Sebastian Bach's life. Straub and Huillet are not prepared to speculate on motivation and personal lives beyond what is revealed in available documents. Bach's life is presented principally through his music in performance by 20th century musicians in 18th century mode. The economic and social context is provided by the narration (mainly Anna Magdalena's monologue) derived chiefly from Bach's letters and necrology written by one of his sons presented in the original form of the language. Implicit in Straub's approach is the position that dramatic re-enactment of historical material is inherently deceptive. The view of Bach as an uncompromising artist hampered by society emerges through the film's discursiveness
