In this epic story of love and treason, screen legend Max von Sydow (The Exorcist, Minority Report, Hannah and Her Sisters, The Seventh Seal, Three Days of the Condor, Zentropa, Pelle the Conqueror) gives a towering performance as Knut Hamsun, Norway’s controversial Nobel Laureate. Hamsun is his country’s most beloved writer. But with the shadow of Nazism quickly darkening Europe, Hamsun and his wife Marie (Ghita Nørby) embrace Hitler – who sees Hamsun’s support as the surest way to win over the Norwegian people. Before long Hamsun and Marie are engulfed not only in Hitler’s war, but also in their own turbulent relationship, and must face the angry wrath of a betrayed nation.
