Heimat - Eine deutsche Chronik

Edgar Reitz West Germany, 1984

suzisch's rating of the film Heimat: A Chronicle of Germany

one of the most significant works of german cinema and a crash course in 20th century in and of itself. Heimat 1 can be a bit slow to watch for the modern viewer but it worth sticking with. Heimat 2 is an excellent coming of age story of art, love and home, connected with the first series. Can't recommend this series highly enough, particularly for those learning german or dating one :)
