BR Deutschland 1979/1980, Spielfilm

Inhalt

Germany, Pale Mother

A perfectly normal love story - except that it takes place in Germany at a certain time: during the Nazi era and the Second World War and into the 50s. A man, a woman, a child. He is a soldier in the German army. She has to endure the bombings and the final flight from her home with her child on her shoulders, or hand in hand, making their way through the woods in the snow. Spring comes. The woods are full of dead bodies. The woman endures rape and the privations of the post-war years to build up her marriage again - only to break down in the end, like the whole brittle edifice of familiy bliss for which all three have waited so long - father, mother and child.
