Synopsis by Sandra Brennan
Husband-and-wife filmmakers Straub and Huillet are best known for their avant-garde films, but they did make a few dramas, though the complexity of this one may turn off some viewers. It is the chronicle of the difficult lives of three generations of relatives from a German family who hold a reunion in 1956 Cologne. There they look back on their troubled history that began when their children were killed during WW I.
