Product Description

**ACADEMY AWARD AND GOLDEN GLOBE WINNER FOR BEST FOREIGN LANGUAGE FILM**

Winner of the Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival.

Lasse, an elderly and widowed farmer, and his young son Pelle, join a boat-load of immigrants to escape from impoverished rural Sweden to Denmark's Baltic island of Bornholm. They are employed at a large farm in Denmark, where they are treated as the lowest of the low. It is ultimately their loving relationship which sustains them through a difficult year.

Bonus Feature: Commentary by film scholar Peter Cowie.

Package includes: Collector's Booklet with film essay by academic/film critic, Terrence Rafferty; cast and crew credits; chapter breaks; stills.

In Bille August's Pelle the Conqueror, Max von Sydow is so astoundingly evocative that he makes your bones ache. --Hal Hinson, The Washington Post

The von Sydow performance is in a category by itself. It is another highlight in an already extraordinary career, and quite unlike anything that American audiences have seen him do to date. - Vincent Canby, The New York Times

[T]he film is a towering achievement, grueling in its portrayal of a harsh existence yet ultimately an exhilarating experience unlikely to be forgotten. --Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times
