Hotel Bellevue


Claire Walka Director


    A journey through time which leads us into the early 60s: With interviews and poetic images the film portrays a family business between tradition and change: The Hotel Bellevue in Lauenburg, a little West German city located at the former inner German border.

    The family Timm has been experiencing good and bad times for now three generations: Dancing tea on Sundays, transit travelers, the border opening after the fall of the Berlin wall or the structural change of the local economy.

    But the hotel is also getting more international as the new cook and landlady comes from Brazil.
