Just as Knut Hamsun's novel, Hunger, considers what it means to starve for one's work, Danish director Henning Carlsen's film adaptation of Hunger portrays the story's protagonist as an inscrutable man whose eccentric dedication to literature costs him his health.

This film, an adaptation of Knut Hamsun's book of the same title, is a truly great film adaptation of a great work of literature.
When I first read the book decades ago, it haunted me long afterwards. No less so with this film which brought it all to life.

Excellent movie- based on the book of the same name by Knut Hamsun- with such a downcast subject the film is actually quite funny- and the performance by the lead actor is a stand-out- I really enjoyed this.

This is an art house film worth watching. The despair is surreal and real at the same time.

This film is every bit as uncompromisong as Knutson's classic book!

Very good acting. A man is standing against the hunger and the world trying to survive his self respect.
