Product details


Product Description

Renowned British director Kenneth Loach's return to feature film-making after his controversial documentaries of the early eighties, 'Fatherland' offers an intriguing blend of political realism (scripted by Trevor Griffiths), psychological thriller and self-reflexivity about Loach's own art and the degree to which it is possible to make effective political statements within popular culture. It follows the forced defection to West Berlin of a famous protest singer-songwriter who comes into conflict with the East German authorities. What he finds in the West is another kind of censorship imposed by those American record executives who control the music market and shape popular culture. Klaus' disillusionment and exile eventually lead him to search for his long-lost father in England and in the process uncovers some of his own personal and national history.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great Ken Loach film...with a caveat 21 Dec 2013

Verified Purchase
I bought this film because I had viewed it once before and was very impressed as always with Ken Loach's work. My mistake was not realizing that while the DVD I purchased has the original English audio track, it does not have English subtitles as an option, only French. The first half of the movie is almost exclusively German dialogue, so be aware which subtitle language is available on the version you buy, as there are several different versions available.
