Sult (Hunger)
Set in the late 1800s, Hunger is about a struggling, starving Norwegian writer (Per Oscarsson) who rejects charity, even though he lives penniless in the streets, because he believes in the strength of his talent. Oscarsson won the Best Actor Award at the Cannes Film Festival for his remarkable performance. The film is based on Knut Hamsun's novel, Sult. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Best of all is the carefully layered lead performance by Per Oscarsson."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
"Henning Carlsen's version of Knut Hamsun's novel plays out accordingly as harrowing tragedy of disintegration and grim comedy of intransigence."
‑ Fernando F. Croce, Slant Magazine
"The haunting characterization by Oscarsson is what gives this tale of misery its muscle and rawness."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
