Storyline

Hermann Simon and Clarissa Lichtbau reunite after almost exactly 19 years when the Berlin Wall falls on November 9, 1989. They 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, 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 Cup championship, marks the reconstruction of this mansion as the new home for the old/new couple. From then on, life in the Hunsrück region takes its course, with new inhabitants, old and new generations interacting. Written by Gonz30

Outstanding
23 February 2006 | by FpiSee all my reviews

Although the last episode in particular is absolutely sublime, this was a slight disappointment after the incredible Heimat 1 and Heimat 2. I felt it was more difficult to connect to the characters here. They're not as interesting, but this could be exclusively because Heimat 3 describes a period of time that's closer to us. There also seems to be less focus on capturing the big picture: This feels more like a conventional drama than the others. Overall, however, if you get a chance to see it, there's no reason to hesitate. And the soundtrack by Nikos Mamangakis is, again, excellent.

Those who are unfamiliar with the Heimat series, should start out with number 1 or 2.
