"It's An Intense and Remarkable Movie." - Pauline Kael

"Writer-director Henning Carlsen and actor Per Oscarsson scaway everything non-essential from this world-famous Knut Hamsun story. Hunger paints a landscape of obsession: the realm of a literally starving artist. Pontus, the protagonist in this terrifying tale, is possibly a genius and probably a madman, and he'll waste away before jeopardizing his talent, integrity, or even his soul. Stunning black-and-white photography, Carlsen's perfectly focused screenplay and Oscarsson's scary, heartbreaking performance made this film a worldwide art house favorite upon its initial release." - Buckhenry, Telluride Film Festival program 2004
