Die Zweite Heimat - Chronik einer Jugend
In 1984, the director of this extraordinarily long film (25+ hours) released a similarly long film, Heimat, which was a mere 15 hours long. Both of them are essentially television miniseries that have been edited for festival viewing into one enormously long film. In this sequel, Die Zweite Heimat follows the lives of a group of young people in Munich in the 1960s and '70s. The main character is a musician from the first film who has been forced to leave his small hometown in order to study music composition in Munich. The circumstances of his move have made him somewhat bitter. He gradually becomes involved in his new life among the musicians and budding filmmakers of the city, and the stories spin out from there, as each character ages and adapts to life's changes. ~ Clarke Fountain, Rovi
