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 all-consuming need to avenge the shocking death of his daughter. Controversial at the time of its release, the film also inspired Wes Craven’s uncredited, equally-polarizing 1972 horror remake, The Last House on the Left.
