It's very slow, subtly acted, and if you can last the course, quite moving
The Emigrants is a stately, pictorially romantic chronicle of the lives of a small group of peasants for whom existence at home becomes so tenuous that emigration seems the only solution.
The acclaim for this 1971 151-minute revisionist epic on the settlement of America still mystifies me.
Infinitely absorbing and moving.
Nowhere has the experience of European emigration to America been told so forcefully and definitively as in Swedish director Jan Troell's duo, The Emigrants and The New Land.
physical and sensory components are essential to the film's dramatic effectiveness, and Troell weaves them quiet masterfully into the fabric of his characters' lives
One of the best films to show the tribulations, bravery and faith of the people who helped build this country.
Harsh yet poetic, Jan Troell's epic saga about Swedish emigration to America in the 19th century is superbly acted by Ullmann and Von Sydov, deservedly receiving Oscar nominations for best foreign-language and best picture.
A masterpiece about the other side of immigration.
The Swedish "Little House" is aided by a European sensibility to be evenly paced and with great subtlety. A tale of a proud but not grandstanding people.
