Spanning several generations, Buddenbrooks is the sweeping tale of the rise and fall of a wealthy German merchant family. Plagued by unsuccessful business decisions, disastrous marriages and personal tragedies, the Buddenbrooks family finds themselves in danger of losing their fortune as well as their souls in this "sumptuous production" (The New York Times) of Thomas Mann’s most famous work.

Had many hours of enjoyable viewing. Even though it is in German, I still
found it most interesting and am happy I spent the money on it. Also,
other family members enjoyed it. Need more offerings such as this.
about 1-1/2 hours away from Luebeck, the setting for the Buddenbrook history) I read the Thomas Mann book, which my parents had in our library.
Of course, now that I'm 81, I didn't remember too much of the
book, but the video brought much of it back to me.
I liked it, but I believe that not too many people, not acquainted with that region of Northern Germany, and the
history of the cities belonging to the Hanseatic League, which include Hamburg, Luebeck, Bremen and a few others, would be
that interested in this family's story.
Still, it is an epic story of a bygone era, and I enjoyed seeing it.
