The true story of Nobel Laureate Knut Hamsun.
In this epic story of love and treason, Max von Sydow gives a career-crowning performance as Knut Hamsun, Norway's controversial Nobel Laureate. Hamsun is his country's most beloved writer. But with the shadow of Nazism quickly darkening Europe, Hamsun and his wife Marie embrace Hitler - who sees Hamsun's support as the surest way to win over the Norwegian people. Before long Hamsun and Marie are engulfed not only in Hitler's war, but also in their own turbulent relationship, and must face the angry wrath of a betrayed nation.
Editor's Note
A compelling dramatization of the last years of Norwegian Nobel Laureate Knut Hamsun's life, when he and his actress wife shocked the world by publicly supporting the Third Reich and openly advocating the Nazi occupation of Norway. But the Hamsuns' controversial politics are strongly rooted in their unconventional and tumultuous family life. His richly nuanced performance won Von Sydow Best Actor awards from the Bodil Film Festival and from the Guldbagge, the Swedish Oscars.

Professional Reviews

New York Times
"...Max Von Sydow gives a career-crowning performance....Mr. Von Sydow's Hamsun is one of the most extraordinarily rich and moving portrayals of an older person ever filmed..." 08/06/1997 p.C15

ReelViews 9 of 10
Working with a brilliant cast, Troell is at the height of his powers. One scene in particular stands out. Hamsun, granted an audience with Hitler (Ernst Jacobi), loses his dignity and stature as he breaks down while pleading for Norway's autonomy. - James Berardinelli
