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

I love this
28 October 2005 | by anthonylindenSee all my reviews

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.
