Product Description

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. Set against the backdrop of these historical forces is the personal story of Hermann Simon (Henry Arnold), now a famous conductor, who has finally reunited with Clarissa (Salome Kammer). Together they make the decision to move back to the village of Hunsruck.

5.0 out of 5 stars The final series of 'Heimat'? 19 Nov 2005
By Jason Parkes #1 HALL OF FAME
Format:DVD
Edgar Reitz's epic account of German life apparently concludes with this third series following the original 80s series and its sequel in the early 1990s. The final scene of Lulu at the beginning of a new century could easily be the start of 'Heimat 4', rather than the full-stop that this final series apparently is.
The second series of 'Heimat' remains my favourite, and this series suffers by not being as epic as the previous two series (apparently butchered in Germany) and a feeling that there is a bit of a soap opera quality to proceedings (e.g. the staple of the car-crash, the illness, the money problems of the heir) - the soap factors in the previous series weren't as apparent. Then again, Reitz and co are dealing with post-reunification Germany, which is a lot less certain than the era of the original series (mostly centred on the rise & fall of the Nazis and the rebirth of West Germany), or the 60s-centred 'Second Heimat'- which was close to Reitz' own experience.
The third series consists of the following episodes/films: Part One: 1989 'The Happiest People in the World';Part Two: 1990 'The Champions'; Part Three: 1992-1993 'The Russians are Coming'; Part Four: 1995 'Everyone's Doing Well'; Part Five: 1997 'The Heirs' & Part Six: 1999-2000 'Goodbye to Schabbach.'
Reitz's chronicle takes up the life of the Simons, principally with Hermann Simon (Henry Arnold) when he meets old flame Clarissa Lichtblau (Salome Kammer) as the Berlin wall falls.

4.0 out of 5 stars Heimat 3 - Maybe not the end? 7 Feb 2006
By Mr. L. N. Taylor VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
I thoroughly agree with the previous review of this brilliant series. This fully deserves 5 Stars, but the reason I have given a 4 Star rating is the cost of the set.
This series only runs 13 hours, yet it comes as a 6 DVD set. It could very easily have been fitted onto 4 discs without any loss of quality. Obviously a 4 disc set wouldn't attract as high a price as a 6 disc set, so the term "rip-off" comes to mind.
Inevitably the price will drop, as has happened with Heimat 1 & 2.
The previous review mentions this being the last Heimat series. However, in the interview with director Edgar Reitz on Disc 1, he states that Heimat 4 would begin on 9/11. He already has the story, and if a producer comes up with the cash, he says he is ready to start filming tomorrow.
Given the huge success of Series 1-3, lets hope he won't be waiting too long!
