The Promised Land (Aka Ziemia Obiecana) DVD
Adapted from Nobel Laureate Wladyslaw Reymont's classic 1897 novel, The Promised Land is the story of three friends - one Polish, one German and one Jewish - 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. Often cited as the greatest Polish film ever, this visceral examination of unbridled capitalism remains morally and politically incisive today. Nominated for the Best Foreign Film Oscar and presented here in its original uncut cinema version, Wajda's lavish epic is a Dickensian tale of greed, human cruelty and betrayal.
