As the 19th century gives way to a new era, four generations of the Buddenbrookses, a German merchant family, cope with the changing times and their own conventions, as well as the rise and fall of their fortunes. But they struggle to balance family loyalty with the drive for individual success. Based on Nobel Prize-winning author Thomas Mann's first novel, this presentation was originally broadcast as an 11-part miniseries on German television.
