Heimat 3 is the third instalment in Edgar Reitz’s monumental Heimat series that first began in 1984 and completes the trilogy that follows the new generation of the Simon family, in a period spanning from 1989 to 2000. Germany changed dramatically in this period, and Reitz cleverly reflects the historical events through the characters’ lives. A virtually unparalleled achievement in cinema, Heimat 3 is the resounding conclusion to one of the most compelling German films of the last 25 years.
