Die andere Heimat : Chronik einer Sehnsucht by Edgar Reitz( Visual )

7 editions published between 1997 and 2014 in German and Undetermined and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Als in der Mitte des 19. Jahrhunderts Hungersnöte, Armut und Willkürherrschaft die Menschen niederdrückten, sind Hunderttausende aus Deutschland ins ferne Südamerika ausgewandert. "Etwas Besseres als den Tod findet man überall", das war ihre bittere Erkenntnis und ihre Hoffnung. Vor dem Hintergrund dieses unvergessenen Dramas, erzählt Edgar Reitz in seinem neuen Kinofilm Die andere Heimat - Chronik einer Sehnsucht die Geschichte zweier Brüder, die in ihrem Hunsrückdorf erkennen, dass nur ihre Träume sie retten können. Jakob, der jüngere Bruder, lässt alle Grenzen, die einem Bauernjungen in dieser Zeit gesetzt sind, hinter sich. Er liest jedes Buch dessen er habhaft werden kann, er studiert die Sprachen der Urwaldindianer, er entwirft Pläne für die romantischsten Abenteuer in den Wäldern Brasiliens und beschreibt seinen Aufbruch aus dem Hunsrück in einem erstaunlichen Tagebuch, das nicht nur seine Geschichte und seine Gedanken wiedergibt, sondern das Lebensbild einer ganzen Zeit
Kaspar Hauser : Verbrechen am Seelenleben eines Menschen by Anselm Feuerbach( Visual )

12 editions published between 1993 and 2009 in German and Undetermined and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Die Geschichte des Findelkindes Kaspar Hauser, das am Pfingstmontag 1828 in Nürnberg auftauchte und anderthalb Jahre später einem Attentat zum Opfer fiel. Diese Verfilmung des bekannten Stoffs läßt die pädagogischen Aspekte des Falles außer acht und stellt den historischen Kriminalfall in den Mittelpunkt. Trotz solider Einzelleistungen kein rundum gelungener Film, da die Fülle der Informationen und die Vielzahl der Personen die politischen Hintergründe verschleiern. Der koproduzierende Sender arte strahlte im März 1995 eine 180-minütige Fassung des Films in zwei Teilen aus. (www.zweitausendeins.de, 3.9.10)

Faust als "furchterregender Forscher" moderner Prägung, der im Ringen um existentielles Verständnis die ethischen Herausforderungen wissenschaftlicher Arbeit übersieht und vor Leben und Umwelt ohne Verantwortungsgefühl ist. Eine diskussionswerte Auslegung des Goetheschen Weltgedichts nach einer Inszenierung der Münchner Kammerspiele; ohne bemerkenswerte Bildsprache und schauspielerisch weitgehend glanzlos.
