This is not only a sequel to the "Second Heimat", but also a chronicle of a very decisive decade for Germany (1989 to 200). The main couple of the mini-series released in 1992, Hermann Simon and Clarissa Lichtbau (played by the same actors), reunite after almost exactly 19 years. Their last night of love in November 1970 closed the previous series. Now, on November 9th, 1989, when the Berlin Wall falls, Hermann and Clarissa meet each other again by mere chance. Surrounded by celebrations, the former lovers bring each other up to date, and reestablish a relationship. Hermann has become a well known maestro and Clarissa, a respected singer, but both lead solitary lives. Clarissa takes Hermann back to his birthplace, Schabbach where he can revisit his brothers, Ernst and Anton (the same actors from Heimat 1), who stayed on there, and extended family and friends. Nearby on a hill, is the house of Clarissa's dreams, a mansion in ruins. Another national party uniting Germany, the 1990 World... Written by
I went to the German movie premier last weekend. It was a wonderful experience to be able to see all 6 of the series during a 2 day sitting at the ProWinz Kino in Simmern, Germany. Although the series was originally sponsored by the German TV group, the original heimat 1 and 2 did not fit into typical programming slots. Heimat 3 production came under pressure to confirm more into regular TV slots, as German TV is becoming more Americanized and working on more similar schedules than they have in the past.
The series was more than I had ever expected,and are a beautiful tribute to artistry, and talents of the filmmaker, Edgar Rietz. If you have seen Heimat 1 or 2, you will definitely want to see 3, but each part of 3 is a film in itself; a work of art, that is enjoyable on it's own. The acting, photography, and story line are all excellent, and I am sure he will win many awards. This film will only reinforce the feelings you have about the quality of film that comes from Edgar Rietz. It is a must. For Heimat fans the photo book that has been published to coincide with the release of Heimat 3 will also be a must too, and is well worth the investment for real fans. They will not be disappointed, as they will not be disappointed with Heimat 3.
