The new film by German director Edgar Reitz mixes historic drama with personal vicissitudes
The new work by Edgar Reitz reaches our screens: a film of four hours that circulate on the screen with an exciting and careful staging.
We are in the fifth episodic delivery of a saga that debuted its first chapter in 1984. Home from home, chronicle of a vision, works as a prequel of the Heimat trilogy, that Edgar Reitz created for television in 1984, 1993 and 2004, and comes to our screens having received awards for best film, best director and best screenplay at the German Film Awards.
In this new step of its national chronicle, Reitz continues to paint on the screen a historical fresch paint in which he has been working for more than 30 years, where life in Germany is told through the eyes of a family from the area of the Hunsrück (Rhine). Personal and domestic life contrasts with flashes of major political and social events, such as the migration of thousands of Europeans to South America in the mid-nineteenth century, in a desperate flight from hunger and poverty.
