The Virgin Spring

Revenge for the death of a child or blind observance of the Christian commandment "Thou shalt not kill!"?
In 14th-century Sweden, an innocent yet pampered teenage girl and her family's pregnant and jealous servant set out from their farm to deliver candles to church, but only one returns from events that transpire in the woods along the way.
Winner of the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film, Ingmar Bergman’s The Virgin Spring is a harrowing tale of faith, revenge, and savagery in medieval Sweden. Starring frequent Bergman collaborator and screen icon Max von Sydow, the film is both beautiful and cruel in its depiction of a world teetering between paganism and Christianity, and of one father’s need to avenge the death of a child.

Media reception

Chicago Reader
"The details are magnificently worked into the narrative, and the pace and economy of the tortured storytelling make his metaphysics easier to take.“
The New York Times
"In all of this representation, Mr. Bergman has achieved a tremendous sense of mental heaviness, primeval passion and physical power."
