Adapted from Nobel Laureate Wladyslaw Reymont s classic 1897 novel, The Promised Land is the story of three friends united in their ruthless pursuit of fortune. With stunning camerawork and sumptuous design, Wadja depicts the explosive energy of a world being transformed by rampant industrialisation.
Nominated for the Best Foreign Film Oscar (and also voted 'Best Film in the history of Polish cinema' in the monthly Polish magazine FILM) Wajda s lavish epic is a wry, incisive, shocking and elegantly realized Dickensian tale of greed, human cruelty, exploitation and betrayal. THE PROMISED LAND is presented here in its original full-length, uncut cinema version.
Presented in its original, UNCUT cinema version from a new HD digital transfer with restored picture and sound, approved by the director. Also features a newly filmed, exclusive interview with director Andrzej Wajda.
