Storyline

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 Gonz30

Interweaving high soap opera with a changing western Europe
19 May 2011 | by See all my reviews

I need to point out that I've not seen Heimat 1, nor 2.

However, I would say that with much recent changing history in Germany; the fall of the Wall, monetary unification and US military bases withdrawing, this hardly seems to matter, as it's all fairly fresh in the mind. We (us Brits) also view it all as slight outsiders as real people (well, fictionalised actors) are affected by those changes and that gives us a freshness, a keenness as another country's scenarios are new to us.

I thought it would plod, be very proper and maybe a bit righteous. However, it was fresh, breezy and superbly presented with a vibrant colour and excellent sound. Acting too, is first rate.

I found myself being swept along with the various characters involved, their almost normal activities keeping it real, but also compelling, as we can relate to their family and business issues. Then, a change of scene, location, and new people the story branches off and you enjoy that route. Cleverly, though, the sub-plots seem to relate or interlink with characters manifesting themselves just as you'd nearly forgotten them.

If I recall, I viewed all of it just over a year ago, over one week. Though it changed its pace from thriller to intense drama, it was never boring. I wasn't riveted to all of it 100%, possibly one can't, with so much going on and human nature warms us to threads that hold particular interest to each of us differently.

Naturally, I'd like to see the original, first and critically most acclaimed box set. This, the second and my third part are collector's items and expensive ones at that. Ones to show off to any knowing and adventurous movie/DVD collector. You'll be comforted in knowing that you're almost unique owning one, let alone having watched it all and even more than that, been thoroughly and decently entertained by it. Now, that IS a talking point...
