The Black Eagle Inn is a fabulously written story about family dynamics. Germany's history post World War II is front and center in this story which shows the trials of a family that owns a country inn and farm. The family and the country deal with the acceptance of homosexuality in such a way that you will remember this story for a very long time.
As is his style, Christoph handles the topic with dignity and class.
