Most recent review listed first
Absolutely wonderful film of the first volume (“Boyhood”, 1906) of the novel “Pelle the Conqueror”, by the Danish writer Martin Andersen Nexø (1869-1954). Pelle Karlsson (played by Stefan Schrader) emigrates from Sweden to Denmark, with his loving and affectionate father, Lasse (Martin Trettau). The film succeeds in combining social realism (the stark realities of farm life, the poverty and occasional cruelties of the labourers) with a sense of the pastoral. To have seamlessly combined these two aspects is a considerable directorial achievement. Stefan Schrader is utterly superb in the title role.My Movie Rating: 10 / 10
