Corn plants shown in the film were spaced only inches apart. In the 1920's each plant was spaced much further apart. Horse drawn planters used "planting chains" anchored at ends of each row so the distance between each row would equal the distance between each plant. See more »
i knew nothing about it before i saw sweet land at a film "class" preview. what a wonderful surprise. it is slow, thoughtful, with frames that are like beautiful photographs. the director gets more across with silence and facial expressions than most dialogue does. the actors are unique individuals - each performance a gem. and, the story is touching
the decent salt of the earth assimilated farmers who feel threatened
by "other" outsiders. the two main characters beautifully portrayed as they work side by side and get to know each other. unique heartland music that respects the acting and dialogue and enhances without taking over at all. i highly recommend this for filmgoers who want to be touched and immersed. kudos to ali selim and fine company.
