A fine example of Polish historical film making. The Promised Land (Polish: Ziemia Obiecana) is set in Łódź in the late 19th century, industrial, lassez-faire, period. The search for wealth and pleasure is all and the workers are cogs in the machine. Made in 1975, the film is lush and is influenced by 20th century expressionist movements and later works of Italian cinema e.g. Fellini. The film was written and directed by the Polish master Andrzej Wajda.

Right out of Upton Sinclair's The Jungle albeit in Poland. Remarkable showing of class behavior

Good film but sometimes difficult to follow.

Makes Wolf of Wallstreet, look like a summer stroll in the park.
