Itay, the Israeli social worker, picks on her with Holocaust jokes and cynical comments on German history, whilst obviously flirting with her. She initially reacts with rejection, but after a while Hanna becomes interested in her family’s history, and also in Itay.
Plot: A German girl travels to Israel to help people with disabilities, where she learns a lot about the role of her grandparents in WWII and meets a man who wants to move to Berlin.

A refreshing look at German-Israelian relationships
Heroine makes journey to find herself – This summary is not the whole answer here, though, because the plot turns out to take on an interesting twist when woven in with the delicate issue of German-Israelian/ German-Jewish relationships. The main character’s path takes a few expected turns, but also as many unexpected ones, which keeps it interesting to see the plot unfold. What’s great about this carefully written piece is that it manages to take a refreshing, humorous approach towards the heavy political issue that hangs over the characters’ heads like the sword of Damocles. A couple of pretty hearty jokes aimed at the German side work well in helping to ease the pressure. Outside of these moments, one feels like a quiet observer in an intimate setting, while watching the lively bunch, each person with their own idiosyncrasies and oddities, trying to find the appropriate way of dealing with each other in a situation where there’s no protocol for it. All this is a pleasure to watch from a photographic point of view; with lovingly designed settings, carefully chosen framing and an interesting use of colors, the visualization becomes something of a metaphorical reflection of the actions taking place in the foreground. So I would recommend ‘Hannah’s Reise’ to fans of romcoms with a twist as much as to those who enjoy movies with a political note (without being preachy or judgmental).
A young German woman coming of age in Israel
The German film Hannas Reise was shown in the U.S. with the title Hanna’s Journey (2013). It was co-written and directed by Julia von Heinz.
Caroline Schuch plays Hanna, a recent college graduate who is at the top of her game. She’s beautiful, she’s intelligent, and she’s certain to get a truly prestigious job. Except . . . the people interviewing her think that she hasn’t really seen the world, or done anything in it. Being the savvy person that she is, Hanna tells them that she can’t start work until she’s spent some time working with people with handicaps in Israel. Definitely a good career move.
Hanna can say that she’ll do that because her mother runs an agency that places people into programs like this. Hanna sets off for Israel, where she finds a chaotic living situation. (The agency has a truly horrible housing location in Israel.) However, she gets past that, only to learn that dealing with people with disabilities is difficult, You can’t just pick it up as you go. One of the stipulations of the placement is that Hanna visit a concentration camp survivor, and that isn’t easy either.
Most coming of age stories involve adolescents, and Hanna is hardly that. However, she does, indeed, come of age in Israel. What she sees and does in Israel changes her present life, and will probably change her future life as well.
We saw this film at the Rochester JCC Hart Theatre, as part of the vaunted Rochester International Film Festival. It will work well on a small screen.
Note: as I write this review, “Hanna’s Journey” has a terrible IMDb rating of 6.3, I don’t understand why people rated it so low. It’s much better than that.
