“Heimat” is the first part of the trilogy of the filmmaker Edgar Reitz (Heimat II and Heimat III followed later).

Although  “Heimat” ( A Chronicle of Germany – Heimat I) lasts almost 15 hours and no one wouldn’t be encouraged to watch it, even it is divided in several episodes, this work is something more than a TV series and it’s not for all.

According the translation, "Heimat” means in a extendend sense “Home” included “mother, father, land”,  the place where you ‘re come from, where you grow up, the place at the center of your heart.

"Toto, I've a feeling we're not in Kansas anymore."
The Wizard of Oz, 1939
