List of Heimatfilm Films and Movies   : Vote for your favorites.

Heimatfilme (German pronunciation: [ˈhaɪmatˌfɪlm], German for "homeland-film"; German singular: Heimatfilm) were films of a genre popular in Germany, Switzerland, and Austria from the late 1940s to the early 1970s. Heimat can be translated as "home" (in the geographic sense), "hometown" or "homeland".

Heimatfilme were usually shot in the Alps, the Black Forest, or the Lüneburg Heath, and always involved the outdoors. Their characteristics were their rural settings, sentimental tone and simplistic morality, and they centered on love, friendship, family and non-urban life. They also involved the difference between old and young, tradition and progress, and rural and urban life. The typical plot structure involved both a good and bad guy wanting a girl, conflict ensuing, and the good guy ultimately triumphing to win the girl, making all happy.
