Storyline

It's May 1950, just before the now-famous Robert Schuman Declaration. Schuman was the French Foreign Minister, who brokered friendly Franco-German Relations after 3 large-scale wars between the two European powers within 70 years brought havoc to Europe regularly. A year after the German Federal Republic (West) was established with Anglo-Franco-American agreement in 1949, the 1950 Declaration, which included the Benelux countries as well, created a West European Customs & Trade Zone. They later added a few more countries to become the European Economic Community, then after two enlargements in the 1980s and 1990s became the EU - the European Union, now expanded significantly larger in area, population, and in economic unity. In the first decade of this century, the EU has again been enlarged twice - the last in 2007 adding Romania and Bulgaria. This story of the EU's origins is told through the chance encounter of a young couple: Jean Monnet, a journalist from the Stuttgarter Zeitung,... Written by Gonz30

When love and forgiveness overcome hate and revenge.
23 December 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The personal story of Marie and Jürgen, with the birth of the European Union as the background, is very moving. We yearn so much for them to reach happiness, against all odds and so many hurdles and prejudices to overcome, that, when it finally arrives, a tear of joy can be forgiven. Paris early 1950s: The social and political situation of France, only 5 years after the end of the war, is framed very well and sets the tone of the movie. The internal conflicts within the French political and industrial classes, as well as on the German side, are pretty well described and highlight the courage of a handful of leaders who were able to rise above the most common feeling of hate and revenge that were prevalent at this time. As the European Union just celebrated (December 22, 2007) the enlargement of the Schengen zone, welcoming 9 new members within a 400- million free-movement Europe, it is refreshing to see how much feelings have evolved over a span of 50 years. Long live the European Union and may the dream of Robert Schuman and Jean Monet inspire more Maries and Jürgens.
