Lost landscapes of East Germany
27 May 2002 | by (Berlin) – See all my reviews

This poetic, slow paced 1992 film was among the first to depict the drastic differences in human and physical landscapes between Eastern and Western Germany after reunification in 1990.

It surprises me that it has been seen by so few people. No doubt, the film is not for mass audiences. Its theme has also been overly used in the 12 years or so since German reunification.

Nevertheless, it is still shown at German film retrospective showings, where it does attract some interest. I recently saw it at such an event in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

The central character Elias, born in East Germany, is a successful politician in Western Germany. When informed of the death of his parents, he returns to his native home town, a small surreal place, seemingly in a time warp. As his visit unfolds, we learn about his rather unusual parents and childhood. We understand what led him to flee to the West as a young teenager.

The entire film is full of metaphors, maybe too full of them. At least looking at it now, ten years after it was made. Still, it is a good film when wanting to reflect, and think of events passed. A bit long for its purpose...but hey, it's a German art film!
