Heimat 3 - Chronik einer Zeitenwende / Heimat 3: A Chronicle of Endings and Beginnings (2004) 6 x DVD9
Concluding six parts of Edgar Reitz's epic series chronicling the last 80 years of German history by focusing on the individual stories of ordinary people. This volume takes the story up to the momentous years between 1989 to 2000, when the collapse of the Berlin Wall led to a reunification of the German nation and an attempt to re-evaluate the nature and history of the country.
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. Together they make the decision to move back to the village of Hunsruck.
