Hamsun (1996)

Ghita Nørby as "Marie Hamsun"

This biopic centers on Knut Hamsun (Max von Sydow), a celebrated author in his native Norway. When fascism sweeps through Germany in the 1930s, the writer shocks his countrymen by allying himself with Hitler. Hamsun's wife, Marie (Ghita Norby), also joins the Nazi cause, and goes so far as to tour in Germany, hosting public speaking engagements in the country. After the war ends, the author and his wife are further vilified in Norway, and ultimately sentenced for crimes against the state.
