Director Bille August's film will celebrate its 30th anniversary on Blu-ray in May.
In an early announcement to retailers, Film Movement is preparing 'Pelle the Conqueror' for Blu-ray on May 2.
Lasse, an elderly and widowed farmer, and his young son Pelle, join a boat-load of immigrants to escape from impoverished rural Sweden to Denmark's Baltic island of Bornholm. They are employed at a large farm in Denmark, where they are treated as the lowest of the low. It is ultimately their loving relationship which sustains them through a difficult year.
Specs, supplements, and a suggested list price have not been announced yet, but the disc will feature a new 30th anniversary restoration.
