Critic Reviews for The Captain (Der Hauptmann)

All Critics (4) | Top Critics (2)

The central premise is arresting, as is the style, but there's a lot more that could have been done with it than just show how one ill-defined individual instantly opts to join his country's lowest form of life.

A film that fully understands the psychology of the German soldiers and offers unflinching, timeless truth.

The Captain plays with the depth of focus while narrating the story from the point of view of murderers engaged in their power struggles. [Full review in Spanish]
