Synopsis:
In "Home From Home: Chronicle of a Vision" filmmaker Edgar Reitz continues the journey through German history which began with the celebrated Heimat trilogy, returning to the fictional village of Schabbach to depict the story of the Simon family's ancestors. Jakob, like most young men, has dreams. However, his are a little bigger than many of his companions' living in a small rural village in 19th century Germany. He wishes to join the hundreds of thousands that are emigrating Europe for the distant and mythical realms of South America.
But his brother's return from military service throws Jakob's life into disarray and he must choose between his dreams of escape and his love for a gem cutter's daughter.

Heimat - Home from Home: Chronicle of a Vision review by CH

Spoiler Alert
17/03/2023

A gorgeously observed black and white German film set in early 20century. Shabbach is still an isolated peasant farming and artisan community that is struggling to keep families together. The young and able bodied are leaving for the cities and the siren call of a new life in the Americas.
