A journey to the deep wounds of a family. An important film about how pain is passed over through generations. Bayerischer Rundfunk

The film is the kind of documentary that you think about for days. If you have the chance to see TACHELES – The Heart of the Matter, you should definitely do it. My absolute recommendation. From Rieck's film reviews

Tacheles - The Heart of the Matter is a strong piece about young people - descendants of perpetrators, victims, and those in-between who try to build a relationship to the past ... a work of art that opens up new perspectives on an often told topic and which stimulates reflection.

In their documentary, Jana Matthes and Andrea Schramm provide tearful, intimate insights into a Jewish family's coming to terms with intergenerational traumas between Germany, Israel and Poland. Anna Steinbauer, Süddeutsche Zeitung
