Corinth Films Unboxing - Habermann, My German Friend, and Where I Belong DVD Unboxing Video

Unboxing a package of German arthouse / independent movies I received from my friends at Corinth Films. I did not know what to expect, and was pleasantly surprised to find Habermann, My German Friend, and Where I Belong, arthouse international dramas that deal with an interesting, controversial time period.

Habermann Habermann is a stimulating film that raises awareness of a post World War II event that must never be forgotten – the brutal and horrific expulsion of ethnic Germans from the Sudetenland and other parts of Eastern Europe. A result of the resentment against Germans as Nazi sympathizers that are responsible for the war, millions of Germans that had been peacefully co-existing alongside Czechs were stripped of their land and possessions and forced in mass exodus back to German soil. Most of them were tortured, many were murdered; whether they had anything to do with the Nazis or not. Based on the true story of August Habermann, a wealthy mill owner interested in neither politics nor ideology, the film portrays a brave man in his attempt to hold together his family and community as he is manipulated by malicious forces beyond his comprehension. CAST: Mark Waschke, Hannah Herzsprung, Karel Roden, Ben Becker, Wilson Gonzalez Ochsenknecht, Franziska Weisz, Radek Holub, Zuzana Krónerová, Jan Hrusínský My German Friend After the war, Nazis and Jews alike fled to Argentina to escape war crime tribunals and the horrendous persecution of the past, respectively. Each brings with them an intense dislike of the other, trying their best to begin new lives, but the ghosts of the past sometimes never let go. Two families, one Jewish, and one German, live side by side. Sulamit, the pretty and energetic young daughter of a wealthy Jewish Marzipan factory owner, meets the young son, Friedrich, of the German family next door and takes a liking to him. The two become close friends, and Friedrich demonstrates his loyalty to Sulamit early on. As time goes by, Sulamit’s family is struck by tragedy at the same time Argentina is engulfed in a coup d’état as Juan Perón is sent into exile. Sulamit, stricken by grief and confusion, finds solace in the arms of Friedrich, and Friedrich’s family accepts her as one of their own. CAST: Max Riemelt, Celeste Cid, Benjamin Sadler, Noemi Frenkel, Jean-Pierre Noher, Katja Alemann, Carlos Kaspar, Daniel Fanego, Julieta Vetrano, Juan Francisco Rey, Adriana Aizenberg Where I Belong The politics of the Third Reich drove thousands into exile. For many, England was the first safe haven. When the war came to an end the world as they knew it had changed forever. Many of them would not return to their homeland. CAST: Natalie Press, Johannes Krisch, Matthias Habich, Katy Bartrop, Charis-Elisabeth Deighton, Karl Fischer, Priscilla Gray, Gerald Home, Linda Large, Catherine McDonough, Christopher Whitlow
