HEIMAT -director Edgar Reitz's massive, ambitious chronicle of German life over the course of the 20th century, from 1919 through the new millennium - appears in its full glory in this comprehensive collection., which includes the first (1984), second (1992) and third (2004) installments. Unfolding in the apocryphal village of Schabbach, and built around the experiences of the Simon family, the saga begins (in part one) with matriarch Maria Simon raising her clan over the course of such pivotal events as the Depression, World War II, and the Economic Miracle of the 1950s. Part Two hones in on Maria's son, Hermann Simon (Henry Arnold) as he builds a life for himself amid the confusion of Munich in the 1960s. And Part Three resumes Hermann's tale as he returns to his hometown of Schabbach after the fall of the Berlin Wall. Sweeping, complex and ambitious, the entire series runs nearly 53 hours.
