The Emigrant Saga
Rated
A family of impoverished 19th century Swedish farmers forsakes their old land for the new: the shores of America and its Midwestern heartland. The trek is long, the promise limitless, the rewards ambiguous and sometimes tragic. Based on Wilhelm Moburg's epic novel (often compared to Knut Hamsun's contemporary Norwegian saga Growth of the Soil), this is one of the only great recent Swedish films not by Ingmar Bergman (albeit with some of his stock company). The film is both vast and intimate, brutal and lyrical; its poetic visuals are honed with a documentary edge. Much of the location photography for the American scenes was done in and near Wisconsin, including one scene at North Freedom and others near Baraboo.
