With the shrinking yield from their farm in mid-19th-century Sweden unable to sustain their family, Karl-Oskar and Kristina Nilsson (Max von Sydow, Liv Ullmann) cast their lot with neighbors embarking on an arduous quest for a new life in America. Jan Troell's sweeping, sumptuously filmed epic "The Emigrants" also stars Eddie Axberg, Sven-Olof Bern. Troell, von Sydow, and Ullmann continued the saga of the Nilssons in "The New Land," as the hardships the family encountered while setting down roots in rural Minnesota were exacerbated in a community torn by the Civil War. Axberg, Pierre Lindstedt co-star. 6 1/2 hrs. total. Widescreen; Soundtrack: Swedish Dolby Digital mono; Subtitles: English; bonus documentary "To Paint with Pictures" (2005); featurettes; theatrical trailers. In Swedish with English subtitles.
