  • Product description

    This monumental mid-nineteenth-century epic from Jan Troell (Here Is Your Life) charts, over the course of two films, a poor Swedish farming family s voyage to America and their efforts to put down roots in this beautiful but forbidding new world. Movie legends Max Von Sydow (The Seventh Seal) and Liv Ullmann (Persona) give remarkably authentic performances as Karl-Oskar and Kristina, a couple who meet with one physical and emotional trial after another on their arduous journey. The precise, minute detail with which Troell depicts the couple s story which is also the story of countless other people who sought better lives across the Atlantic is a wonder to behold. Engrossing every step of the way, the duo of The Emigrants and The New Land makes for perhaps the greatest screen drama about the settling of America.

    2.0 out of 5 stars Great story, but poor disk copy..
    By Blongsea on 16 May 2019
    I think this may be the most educational and realistic and best acted "HOW WE WON THE WEST" epics ever told! It is based on a trilogy by Wilhelm Moberg then THIS 2-part Movie by Jan Troell and finally a MUSICAL called KRISTINA that played on the Carnegie Hall stage. In summary: 3 x books + 2 x Movies + 1 x Musical! Not bad...
    Sadly the two DVD disks I received from AMAZON was glitzy and unstable with missing "chapters". I suspect it is a damaged 2nd hand copy... And very expensive with overseas postage to Australia. I'm hugely disappointed...
