The Peasants


DK & Hugh Welchman | 2023 | 114 MINS
Poland | Subtitles
International Panorama: Poland

Using an advanced oil painting animation technique, this is a visually thrilling rendering of Władysław Reymont’s Nobel Prize-winning tale. From the makers of ‘Loving Vincent.’

In Detail

Crops, relationships and dowries preoccupy the wagging tongues of the villagers of Lipke. Jagna is wedded off to a rich widower, but her love for his son threatens to tear all their lives apart.

More epic in scope than the directors’ 2017 award-winning ‘Loving Vincent,’ this is a naturalistic portrait of 19th-century Poland and a spellbinding tableau of tragic love and one woman’s yearning for independence.

It is bewildering to imagine that he final visual effect that we see on screen has been achieved by using a team of animators and painters who work tirelessly by hand.

“A ravishingly beautiful visual triumph.” Hollywood Reporter.
