THE ADVENTURES OF HUCK FINN
DIE ABENTEUER DES HUCK FINN
2012, Betacinema, 102 min, Germany, Dir: Hermine Huntgeburth

A lively German language adaptation of Mark Twain's classic satire. Huck Finn, having found treasure with his best friend Tom Sawyer, is now chafing in the shoes and starched shirts that come with his new wealthy lifestyle. He'd like nothing more than to kick off his shoes and run wild along the river. He gets his chance when his drunken father (August Diehl) arrives and demands a share of Huck's money. Huck decides to escape downriver and he brings along Jim, the house slave who has recently discovered that he will be handed over to a slave trader. The two travel the Mississippi River on a makeshift raft, hoping to outrun Huck's violent father and find a place where Jim can be accepted as a free man. Twain's timeless adventure is exuberantly brought to the screen in a film that can be enjoyed by the whole family. In German with English subtitles.
