Pelle the Conquerer
BAM Rose Cinemas (30 Lafayette Ave., Brooklyn)
Pelle (Hvenegaard) and his father (von Sydow) emigrate from 19th-century Sweden to Denmark, dreaming of a better life but confronted instead with bitter discrimination and hardship. Von Sydow delivers an “immensely moving, tender depiction of a man cowed by age and servitude” (Time Out London) in this stirring epic based on Martin Andersen Nexø’s four-part novel. Winner of the Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film.
