Among his many legendary performances, Sydow starred in "The Apple War," a 1971 German film about Jean Volkswagner, a businessman who comes to Sweden to build Deutschneyland, a gigantic amusement park for German tourists. Roy Lindberg, played by Sydow, does not like the idea, and with the help of a little magic, his family starts scheming against it.
