It’s competition time again here at Blueprint: Review and once again, we have something really special to give away. The Criterion Collection and Emfoundation are offering us 1 copy of The Emigrants/The New Land to give away on Blu-Ray.
Details on how to enter the competition are at the bottom of this page, but in the meantime, here’s some information about The Emigrants/The New Land:
This monumental mid-nineteenth-century epic from Jan Troell charts, over the course of two films, a 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 and Liv Ullmann 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 that of countless other people who sought better lives across the Atlantic—is a wonder to behold. Engrossing at 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.
The Emigrants/The New Land is out now on Blu-ray in the UK, released by The Criterion Collection.
