2.0 out of 5 stars Propaganda film, October 20, 2010
This review is from: Sweet Land - A Love Story (DVD)
I watched several segments of this film on the TV last weekend and noticed a subtle theme in all the segments I watched. Basically, the theme is: religion is bad, Americans, especially hard-working middle Americans, are nasty half-witted bigots, especially the ones who go to church. They are intolerant, and not enlightened like the Europeans are. They persecute people for being socialists (gasp).

Well, I have a few things to say about that, but I leave it at a single example: At least hardworking "American religious bigots" did not murder 11 million Ukrainians. Do I need to mention any other atrocities committed by socialists? Even national socialists?

It's a film filled with beautiful scenery and lovely romance. Hence 2 stars. But be careful not to suck in the socialist propaganda which is at the heart of this film, lest you too, turn into a "useful idiot." Because the heaven on earth socialists promise is never what they deliver, at least not for the vast majority who unwittingly find themselves under their rule.

Most intolerance, bigotry and prejudice begins in the church. I'm looking forward to seeing this film.

I don't agree with a lot you said, since most Europeans followed like sheep when their very existance was at jeopardy.

You said you watched segments of the film. I suggest you watch the whole thing, and then I'll take you seriously.
I just saw it, and enjoyed it on many levels. My parents were German emigrants after WW I and I believe that the story is quite accurate.

Well, it seems Mr. Jensen has decided to take it on the German immigrants, apparently remembering 11 million Ukranians, without mentioning a single Jewish German or even a Polish soul, or for that token millions of Vietnamiese? As a son of German immigrants and German priests I take direct offense at Mr Jensen... let's call them what they are racist comments.. I will leave it at that since my it's clear that that intolerance that the film depicts are still vivid today, examples would be the blockade of the DREAM act covering children rights for citizenship.

America has killed millions of innocents in countries all over the globe. We have the largest military on earth, and an arms industry that sees to it that we are never at peace with the world. We're no different from anyone else, except that we have more weapons by far. And when you have weapons, every problem looks like it can be solved by war.
