New York in the 60s. Gesine Cresspahl tells her eleven-year-old daughter Marie the family history. In flashbacks she describes the time in Germany before and during National Socialism and in the early GDR.
For a long time German author Uwe Johnson’s complex masterwork Anniversaries (Jahrestage) was believed to be unfilmable. Director Margarethe von Trotta filmed it anyway. The result is a four-part miniseries, in which von Trotta succeeds in translating the complexity and intricacy of the novel into cinematic language.
