In the end, Pelle demonstates his strength beyond most adult men.
This movie is directed and produced so clearly and accurately that it draws you into the the harsh, physically filthy and emotionally draining life on the farm. Since it is filmed over the course of about one year, you need not doubt that the georgous scenery is real. The blizzard, the ice, and the fields are real. In fact, Pelle Hvenegaard was named 12 years before the production after Pelle from the novel. Pelle is an uncommon Swedish name. His acting was so good that one forgets this was a movie.
The ending put me in tears. Although it was somewhat predictable, it still packed an emotional punch. It took my breath away.
I can recommend this Academy Award winning movie to anyone.
My grandparents came to the US from Sweden and Denmark during the early part of the 20th century. Until I saw this movie, I did not understand why they chose to come here. Now I have a strong appreciation of what they went through to come to the US.
This movie is quite incredible. It is very difficult to watch, but not because of the direction/actors/story - but because it brings up multiple, complex topics that are dealt with in a way you probably have never seen before if you are used to watching movies with happy, tidy endings. Max Von Sydow, as usual, is excellent in this movie.
I am REALLY upset that this is not available! If you can get it, get the one without the dubbing - Dubbing is a very bad thing and you really do lose a lot in the translation.
