This mesmerizing debut by the great Swedish director Jan Troell (The Emigrants, The New Land) is an epic bildungsroman and a multilayered representation of early twentieth-century Sweden. Based on a series of semi-autobiographical novels by Nobel Prize winner Eyvind Johnson, Here Is Your Life follows a working-class boy's development, from naive teenager to intellectually curious young adult, from logger to movie projectionist to politically engaged man of the people-all set against the backdrop of a slowly industrializing rural landscape. With it's mix of modernist visual ingenuity and elegantly structured storytelling, this enchanting film-presented here in it's original nearly three-hour cut-is a reminder that Troell is one of European cinema's greatest and most sensitive illuminators of the human condition.
