English Summary:

Taps is a 1981 American drama film starring George C. Scott and Timothy Hutton, with Ronny Cox, Tom Cruise, Sean Penn and Evan Handler in supporting roles. Hutton was nominated for a Golden Globe award in 1982. The film was directed by Harold Becker from a screenplay by Robert Mark Kamen, James Lineberger, and Darryl Ponicsan, based on Devery Freeman's 1979 novel Father Sky. The original music score was composed by Maurice Jarre. It was filmed at Valley Forge Military Academy and College.

The film follows a group of military school students who decide to take over their school in order to save it from closing. It was Cruise's second film role, following a brief appearance in Endless Love, released in 1981 just a few months before Taps.

Bunker Hill Military Academy has just concluded another school year. Cadet Brian Moreland, a junior, meets privately with the academy commandant, retired Brigadier General Harlan Bache. Bache promotes Moreland to Cadet Major, the paramount rank at BHMA. Bache also reflects on the time when he was a cadet at West Point (Moreland's intended college), as well as a graduate of BHMA prior to that, and how he dreads his forthcoming retirement. Moreland is congratulated first by his best friend Cadet Captain Alex Dwyer, as well as by Cadet Captain David Shawn and Cadet Lieutenant Edward West. Shawn leads a celebration in the hallway. The commencement proceeds, with a parade and a pass in review.

 

German Summary:

Die Kadetten von Bunker Hill (Alternativtitel: Revolte der Kadetten; Originaltitel: Taps) ist ein US-amerikanisches Filmdrama aus dem Jahr 1981. Die Regie führte Harold Becker, das Drehbuch schrieben Robert Mark Kamen, James Lineberger und Darryl Ponicsan anhand des Romans Father Sky von Devery Freeman. Die Hauptrolle des Anführers der Kadetten spielte Timothy Hutton.

In der traditionsreichen Kadettenanstalt Bunker Hill erhalten Kinder und Jugendliche eine straffe, militärisch geprägte Ausbildung, um sie auf einen späteren Dienst in den US-Streitkräften vorzubereiten. Kommandeur der Anstalt ist der pensionierte General Harlan Bache, der als übermächtige Vaterfigur insbesondere die älteren Jahrgänge der Kadetten mit seinen Kriegserlebnissen und idealistisch gefärbten Darstellungen des Soldatenlebens in seinen Bann zieht. Dieses realitätsferne Bild bringt die Kadetten dazu, Tugenden wie Gehorsam, Tapferkeit und Pflichtbewusstsein falsch zu verstehen und aus einem Blickwinkel zu betrachten, der sie fehlleitet.
