/About The Promised Land/

Set in the end of the nineteenth century Łódź – the cradle of Polish textile industry – this movie is about three friends: a Pole – Karol Borowiecki, a German – Max Baum, and a Jew – Moritz Welt, who want to set up a textile factory. They use various tricks enforced by ruthless cotton magnates. After the fire consumes their brand new factory, their paths diverge. Karol compromises noble ideals and breaks off the engagement with Anka to marry Mada Mueller, a daughter of the biggest manufacturer Müller, which enables him to come into possession of the greatest capital in Łódź. ‘The Promised Land’ is a film adaptation of the novel by Władysław Reymont, being an epic image of the conflicts of the 19th-century capitalist Łódź. This Polish masterpiece has won numerous awards, including four Golden Lions at the Polish Film Festival and an Oscar nomination for ‘Best Foreign Language Film’ category.
