Review

A star rating of 4 out of 5.

Having survived the perilous passage depicted in The Emigrants, Swedish farmer Max von Sydow and his wife, Liv Ullmann, endeavour to make their mark upon the unrelenting plains of Minnesota in this concluding part of Jan Troell's epic adaptation of Vilhelm Moberg's literary saga. As before, Troell's refusal to romanticise either the landscape or the daily grind heightens the authenticity of the struggle, as well as its dramatic intensity. Proud but vulnerable, von Sydow is superb as he tries to comprehend both his kinsmen's lust for gold and the complex politics that will plunge his adopted nation into civil war.
