    MAX VON SYDOW

    The great swedish (and a bit French, that I didn't know) actor Max Von Sydow is dead.
    He had a brilliant international carreer but for me he will allways be the actor of Ingmar Bergman's movies,I discovered in the60's and 70's. Before watching them, I didn't know that cinema could be so powerful.


    Here is an article and a video.

    I first knew about von Sydow back in 1970-71, when he and our Norwegian Liv Ullmann starred in the great movies Utvandrerne and Nybyggerne, about people leaving Sweden to get a new start in America back in the 1800's.
    I was only 8 years when I first saw these two 3,5 hours long movies, and the content had burned into my mind and memory.
    Of course I was too young to watch, as the movies had a 15+ years age limit, but anyway.

    Then, our tv distributor Get here in Norway lost the rights to send a few channels we use to watch for a periode, due to contract negotiations and such, and as a service we got their C More channels opened for a few days.
    There, on what they call the SF (Swedish Film) channel, they sent Utvandrerne and Nybyggerne again. That was the night before Max von Sydow died.
    Strange..., I haven't seen the two movies since 1970, then they pop up on my tv and then Max die.
    Rest in Piece, good man.

      Yes two great films by Ian Troell. If I remember well they had an Oscar.

        Both films got each one Golden Globe, but was nominated for 5 Oscars. From Google, it seems like they did not get one though.
