While America watched Roots, Germany watched Heimat with the same mixture of pride and shame that held a nation spellbound. The riveting 16-hour film was the sensation of the Munich, London and Venice Film Festivals and a huge hit in France and Germany. It is the incredible interlocking saga of a German family from the end of World War I to 1982. Ambitious, grand, yet very intimate, Heimat is an incredible motion picture chronicle--an immersion in the lives, loves and tragedies of the extended Simon family. Shot over two years, the film features 28 leading performers, 140 speaking roles and a cast of 5,000 non-professional actors. In German with English subtitles.
| 1984, 6-DVD Set, 924 mins.
