Sweet Land

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Drama Rated PG. In Ali Selim's Independent Spirit Award-winning tale of how love triumphs over ignorance, German immigrant Inge tells her life story to her grandson after burying her husband on their farm in Minnesota in 1968. Inge begins her tale in 1920, when she's just become a mail-order bride to Norwegian-American farmer Olaf. Discovering that Inge's heritage is actually German, both Olaf and the community struggle to overcome years of anti-German propaganda and prejudice. This is a slow moving drama that slowly unfolds the romance while touching on immigration as well. It's slow but sweet and never leaves you bored and the settings of the midwest are simply beautiful. The cast which includes Elizabeth Reaser,Tim Guinee and Alan Cumming to name only a few give fantastic performances. There's not anything bad I can say about this film, it truly touches you with it's great story, cinematography and direction that together make for one of the best drama pieces I have seen this year.
