One of the best German production in the last years
7 March 2005 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

No question, I highly recommend that somebody is taking this movie and make it available to more viewers than those that speak German. It was originally broadcasted on TV and later became available as a 3-disc DVD Set. I cannot comment on the authenticity of that picture but it is highly interesting and gives a great inside view of the life of the MANNs and the life what it has been in Germany before, while and after WWII in an academic environment. We have totally enjoyed the 3 DVDs and could hardly wait for the next DVD to watch. A picture that probably would have gotten plenty of Oscars if ever been presented to an American public - tells you a lot about how these pictures get selected.....
