The 77-year-old Swedish filmmaker Jan Troell is best known in the U.S. for his pair of 1970s epics The Emigrants and The New Land, which starred Max von Sydow and Liv Ullmann.

His latest film is Maria Larsson's Everlasting Moments — shortened in this country to Everlasting Moments. It will open in select cities over the next month, and also can be seen on pay-per-view cable.
