The Promised Land


Directed by Andrzej Wajda

- +

Adapted from Nobel Laureate Władysław 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, Andrzej Wajda 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 magazine FILM) Wajda's lavish epic is a wry, incisive, shocking and elegantly realized Dickensian tale of greed, human cruelty, exploitation and betrayal. This visceral examination of unbridled capitalism remains morally and politically incisive today.
