Rated NR

Director Ali Selim, with funding that would have bought about 1/100th of a Hollywood movie, has made an incredibly professional-looking film about a German immigrant who struggles to fit into a Norwegian immigrant community in 1920s Minnesota. It’s relentlessly sweet and touching, with lots of open space and love and sweeping shots of corn fields. If you go for that sort of thing, you’ll love Sweet Land. If you dislike sentiment, you might still enjoy it, as there’s nothing particularly wrong with it, but its story is so safe that there’s little to challenge the viewer. It’s the cinematic equivalent of taking a nice hot bath and then falling asleep in flannel sheets.
