News & Interviews for The Emigrants (Utvandrarna)
Critic Reviews for The Emigrants (Utvandrarna)
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.
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.
Audience Reviews for The Emigrants (Utvandrarna)
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.
