Storyline

This is not only a sequel to the "Second Heimat", but also a chronicle of a very decisive decade for Germany (1989 to 200). The main couple of the mini-series released in 1992, 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. 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 (the same actors from Heimat 1), 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... Written by Gonz30

Outstanding
23 February 2006 | by See all my reviews

Although the last episode in particular is absolutely sublime, this was a slight disappointment after the incredible Heimat 1 and Heimat 2. I felt it was more difficult to connect to the characters here. They're not as interesting, but this could be exclusively because Heimat 3 describes a period of time that's closer to us. There also seems to be less focus on capturing the big picture: This feels more like a conventional drama than the others. Overall, however, if you get a chance to see it, there's no reason to hesitate. And the soundtrack by Nikos Mamangakis is, again, excellent.

Those who are unfamiliar with the Heimat series, should start out with number 1 or 2.
