Hamsun

Jan Troell, Denmark, 1996

160 min.DK/Feature

Norway's ever-controversial literature Nobel Prize laureate Knut Hamsun and his fall from grace following World War II, where he had come out in support of Nazi ideology, and his eventual high treason trial rendered into fiction by Sweden's Jan Troell. The fiction, however, is confined to personal shadings in the accounting of Hamsun's stormy marriage to Marie and the dangerous path they chose to take together.
