Bart Van Esch

Bitter ist die Verbannung, Bitterer noch die Heimkehr

Edition 1998
58' - 1999 - Drama, Documentary - Dialogue: Dutch
Director: Bart Van Esch With: Bruno Ganz, Carolyn Sherwood Jones, Gerardjan Rijnders
This is a dramatised documentary about the exile of the German writer Klaus Mann, especially his years in Amsterdam. From 1933 to 1937 and from 1947 to 1949 he spent most of his time in Amsterdam and New York. In the film, these two periods stand for the rise and fall of Klaus Mann. The story of Mann is that of an individualist who considered social recognition to be of the utmost importance for his personal happiness. His individualism would not be out of place today.
