English Summary:

The Bridges of Madison County is a 1995 American romantic drama film based on the best-selling novel of the same name by Robert James Waller. It was produced by Amblin Entertainment and Malpaso Productions, and distributed by Warner Bros. Entertainment. The film was produced and directed by Clint Eastwood with Kathleen Kennedy as co-producer and the screenplay was adapted by Richard LaGravenese. The film is about an Italian war bride, Francesca (Meryl Streep), who lives with her husband and two children on a farm in Iowa. In 1965, she meets a National Geographic photographer named Robert (Eastwood) and has a four-day extramarital affair with him that changes both of their lives forever. The film earned $182 million worldwide and was well received by critics. Streep received an Academy Award for Best Actress nomination in 1996 for her performance in the film.

Plot

In the present, adult siblings Michael and Carolyn arrive at the Iowa farmhouse of Francesca Johnson, their recently deceased, elderly mother, to see about the settlement of their mother's estate. As they go through the contents of her safe deposit box and the will, they are baffled to discover that their mother left very specific instructions that her body be cremated and her ashes thrown off the nearby Roseman Covered Bridge, which is not in accordance with the burial arrangements their parents had made: side-by-side plots in the local cemetery. Michael initially refuses to comply with the cremation, while Carolyn discovers a set of photos of her mother and a letter. She manages to convince Michael to set aside his initial reaction so they can read the documents she has discovered. Once alone, they go through a series of letters from a man named Robert Kincaid to their mother. The siblings find their way to a chest where their mother left a letter, a series of diaries, photographs, old cameras and other mementos.

 

German Summary:

Mitte der 1990er-Jahre: Nach dem Tod von Francesca Johnson ordnen ihre beiden erwachsenen Kinder Michael und Carolyn deren Nachlass. Ihre Mutter hat in ihrem Testament verfügt, sie einäschern und ihre Asche von der Roseman Bridge verstreuen zu lassen. Die Kinder wundern sich darüber und stoßen bei ihren Nachforschungen auf ihnen bisher unbekannte Fotos ihrer Mutter aus dem Jahr 1965. Aus einem ihrer Briefe erfahren sie, dass ihre Mutter damals eine Affäre mit einem Fotografen hatte, der 1982 verstarb und ebenfalls verfügte, dass man seine Asche von der Roseman Bridge verstreuen solle. Die Kinder sind zunächst empört, lesen dann aber die drei Tagebücher ihrer Mutter und erfahren, was sich damals zugetragen hatte.

Die ursprünglich aus Italien stammende Francesca Johnson ist 1965 eine Mittvierzigerin, die mit ihrer Familie auf einer Farm in Winterset, Iowa, lebt. Als ihr Mann Richard mit den beiden Kindern für vier Tage zu einer Landwirtschaftsausstellung nach Illinois fährt, bleibt Francesca allein zurück. Sie widmet sich ihrer Alltagsarbeit, als ein Autofahrer vorbeikommt, um sie nach dem Weg zu fragen. Der Unbekannte ist Robert Kincaid, ein Fotograf aus Bellingham, der für National Geographic die überdachten Brücken von Madison County fotografieren soll. Nach einem vergeblichen Versuch, den Weg mit Worten zu erklären, begleitet Francesca den Fremden kurzerhand zu der gesuchten Roseman Bridge. Auf der Fahrt dorthin kommen sie ins Gespräch. Francesca ist skeptisch und fasziniert zugleich von Roberts lockerer und weltoffener Art. Wieder daheim, bittet sie ihn, auf einen Eistee mit ins Haus zu kommen. Schließlich bleibt er sogar zum Abendessen.
