"Pelle the Conqueror"
Directed by Bille August
Winner of the Cannes Festival Palme d'Or and the
Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film, Bille August's moving film
features a remarkable performance by Max von Sydow as the Swedish father
who takes his son Pelle to Denmark in search for a new life. In the harsh
milieu of the Danish farm, Pelle is inspired by the dreams of those around
him, but realizing that his father cannot help him fulfill his dream,
Pelle sets off for a life of adventure--to conquer the world. In Danish
