The New Land/The Emigrants - Criterion Collection
The New Land/The Emigrants - Criterion Collection
  • 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.

    Bonus Features:

    • New high-definition digital restorations of both films, with uncompressed monaural soundtracks
    • New introduction by critic and Swedish-film expert John Simon
    • New conversation between film scholar Peter Cowie and director Jan Troell
    • New interview with actor Liv Ullmann
    • To Paint with Pictures, a 2005 documentary on the making of the films, featuring archival footage as well as interviews with Troell, Ullmann, producer and co-screenwriter Bengt Forslund, and actor Eddie Axberg
