FILM CURRENTLY UNAVAILABLE
RETURN
Edgar Reitz (director of the 'Heimat' Trilogy) continues his visionary journey through German history with a domestic drama and love story set against the backdrop of a forgotten tragedy. In the mid 19th century, hundreds of thousands of Europeans emigrated to faraway South America. It was a desperate bid to escape the famine, poverty and despotism that ruled at home. Jakob, the younger of two brothers, dreams about leaving his small village for adventures in the wild Brazilian jungle. Everyone who encounters Jakob is drawn into the maelstrom of his dreams: his parents, his belligerent brother Gustav, and above all, Henriette, the daughter of a gem cutter fallen on hard times. His brother’s imminent return from military service, however, is destined to shatter Jakob's world and his love for Henriette. ★★★★ “Evocative, surprising and very entertaining" - Jonathan Romney, The Observer ★★★★ "Never dull for a moment; indeed, there is a boxset addictiveness to the whole thing" - Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian ★★★★★ "A magnificent, career-capping achievement from one of the great storytellers of our era" - Trevor Johnston, Time Out
