In "The Peasants," Jagna is a young woman determined to forge her own path within the confines of a late 19th century Polish village –– a hotbed of gossip and ongoing feuds, held together, rich and poor, by pride in their land, adherence to colorful traditions and deep rooted patriarchy . When Jagna finds herself caught between the conflicting desires of the village's richest farmer, his oldest son, and other leading men of the community, her resistance puts her on a tragic collision course with the community around her. Based on the Nobel Prize-winning novel. (Gary Reber)

Special features include the theatrical trailer.

The 1.85:1 1080p AVC picture, reviewed on a VIZIO Quantum X P85QX-JI UHD/HDR display, was animated digitally and sourced from a 2K Digital Intermediate. The humanized animation is creatively wonderful. The picture is beautiful with each frame thoroughly compelling. Color fidelity is superb with warm and rich hues that light up the screen. Nuanced hues are spectacular. Flesh tones appear naturally hued. Contrast is excellent with deep black levels, revealing shadows and natural white levels, Image depth is dimensionally good. Resolution is excellent with superb textural detail. Facial features are well defined with detail, Clothing is nicely defined as well as objects. This is a living painting that is very beautiful and one that is an amazing and mesmerizing visual experience. (Gary Reber)

The DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1-channel Polish and English dubbed soundtracks are well crafted, The English version sounds realistic. Given that all the sound elements are created, atmospherics sound realistic. Sound effect are supported with deep .1 LFE bass. A thunder and lightening rain storm is present with incredible realism. Lukasz Rostowski's wonderful orchestral/choral score is well recorded and spans a wide soundstage which extends to envelop the surrounds. The wedding dance scene is spectacular. Dialogue is nicely integrated spatially. This is a very creative holosonic® soundtrack. (Gary Reber)
