Henning Carlsen Denmark, 1966

Bogdan Liviu's rating of the film Hunger

Knut Hamsun, who was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1920, has the reputation of being a norwegian Dostoyevsky. In "Hunger", you will meet Raskolnikov and the brother of The Underground Man. Furthermore, Thomas Mann described him as a descendant of Fyodor Dostoyevky and Friedrich Nietzsche. So if you love Fyodor Dostoyevsky, I highly recommend reading the novel "Hunger", and then watch this wonderful movie.
