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
A story as brilliantly told as the first Heimat...I did not think that would be possible, but this truly is a masterpiece...I want it on DVD!! I was 19, and at university as a fresher when the Berlin Wall fell - an event that, looking back, none of us ever thought would happen. The euphoria is captured as I remembered at the time. Then the football World Cup in 1990, Gunnar's marriage breakdown, Hartmut's clumsy attempts to usurp his father, through to the deaths of Anton and Ernst, the cancer suffered by Clarissa - all of these events can be related somehow to all our own experiences of the 1990s. That is why Heimat 3 ranks so highly - the director managed to get me to feel nostalgic for events that occurred so recently. In the years to come, these feelings will grow stronger and Heimat 3 will become even more poignant for me.
