The end of the 19th century. A boat filled with Swedish emigrants comes to the Danish island of Bornholm. Among them are Lasse and his son Pelle who move to Denmark to find work. They find employment at a large farm, but are treated as the lowest form of life. Pelle starts to speak Danish but is still harassed as a foreigner. But none of them wants to give up their dream of finding a better life than the life they left in Sweden. (imdb)

The film works equally well as a coming-of-age film, a period piece, and a father-son two-hander. But I wouldn't say it truly excels in any one of those subgenres/plots. Most memorable are the bullying scenes between young boys, the general grime and poverty of peasant life, and the awkward age gap between Lasse and Pelle. I feel this film is structurally quite flawed, with wasted subplots and lack of resolution. The message gets lost in the dirt and ice. But it's memorable nonetheless.

One of the best Danish films of all time - and of cause a Swede outshines all the Danish actors (just like Rolf Lasgård from 'After the Wedding', but even better).

Excellent production with great performances, it will always be the first thing that comes to my mind when I think of feudalism. As striking as it was, though, I always felt a little too detached from the content, which made the experience a bit tedious despite my appreciation for it..

Highly effective award bait, Pelle the Conqueror won all the biggest accolades and prizes, despite being a very average film. The trick was to film a child protagonist going through a lot of hardships, in the countryside with grandiose Bertolucci-like cinematography. Pelle gets mistreated in a host of deplorable but screen-friendly ways while doing crowd-pleasing child melodrama stuff like telling a young man who aborted his unborn "Papa would never kill me!". Culminates in a tear-jerker ending.
