Nails the immigrant experience, and also the challenges of fatherhood when the father is older, impoverished, and yet still a dreamer. Both leads turn in excellent, subtle performances.

Long but well worth watching. This film is most definitely a classic that will stand the test of time.

Long and depressing, but well-made and worthwhile.

"pelle Erobreren" is one of Max von Sydow's finest movies. He shares the movie credits with Pelle, Hvenegaard (yes, he has the same name as the authors original lead character). I loved this movie so much it made me sad to see it end. It is such a touching movie and I was never bothered that it was in the Danish Language and with subtitles. One of the best Five Star movies I have ever watched.
