DESCRIPTION

At first The Emigrants appears simply to document the lives of four Jewish ?migr?s in the twentieth century. But gradually, as Sebald's precise, almost dreamlike prose begins to draw their stories, the four narrations merge into one overwhelming evocation of exile and loss.Written with a bone-dry sense of humour and a fascination with the oddness of existence The Emigrants is highly original in its heady mix of fact, memory and fiction and photographs.

However, the small size of their land, the infertile soil, and some bad harvests make it tough. One of their children even starves to death. Karl Oskar Nilsson (Max von Sydow) and his wife, Kristina (Liv Ullmann), work a farm in a cold and desolate area of rural Sweden in the middle of the 19th century.

What's the difference between emigrant, immigrant, and migrant? A migrant is a person who moves from one place to another (and perhaps back and forth). The Emigrants is an elaborately conceived novel, dense with dynamic characters and evocative details. First published in 1954, it focuses initially on the emigrant journey, then on the settling-in process. The precise, minute detail with which Troell depicts the couple's story—which is also that of countless other people who sought better lives across the Atlantic—is a wonder to behold.
