The Promised Land

The Promised Land director's cut
Director: Andrzej Wajda
Country: Poland
Not to be confused with the new film by Gus Van Sant, this is a 1975 Polish epic by the great Andrzej Wajda. In this director's cut, the city of Lodz in the 19thcentury comes to life. At the time Lodz was in the midst of a capitalist/industrial boom of unprecedented proportions. This was Lodz and Poland before the Nazis and the Communists. The film tells the story of three men who successfully start a modern textile factory together: Karol, a Pole; Moritz, a Jew; and Max, a German. But when the three men come to blows, they make Faustian deals in order to survive. Wajda paints a fascinating human canvas: the old bourgeoisie, the cut-throat capitalists, and the emerging minorities. His masterpiece is as relevant today as it was 100 years ago. (1975; 138 min)
