Sweden 19 Inspired by a medieval Swedish ballad, Ingmar Bergman's The Virgin Spring Jungfrukallan begins with a scene of unspeakable brutality and ends with an image of uncommon beauty. The men look for shelter at the home of Birgitta's father Max Von Sydowwho murders the bestial killers in cold blood.
Starring Max von Sydow and photographed by the brilliant Sven Nykvist, the film is both beautiful and cruel in its depiction of a world teetering between paganism and Christianity. By Peter Cowie. By Hillary Weston.
In his more recent films—"The Seventh Seal," "Wild Strawberries" and "The Magician"— the Swedish director has shown a tendency to ever greater intellectual complexity of theme. But now, in his latest to be released here and successor to the above"The Virgin Spring," he has done a substantial about face and tackled a theme of supreme simplicity. It is a straight equating of violence and revenge, of brutality and compassion or—to reduce it to simplest terms—of evil and good.

Como cada verano, una doncella debe hacer la ofrenda de las velas en el altar de la Virgen. Antes de cruzar el bosque, Ingrid se detiene y abandona a la princesa, pero la muchacha prosigue su camino y se encuentra con unos pastores, aparentemente afables, que la invitan a compartir su comida. Nominada a la Palma de Oro. Impresionante e inolvidable.
When The Virgin Spring hit the United States inthe rape sequence incited censorship across the country specifically Fort Worth, Texas, who banned showings of the film because of the scene, and yet Bergman stood behind it and believed the scene was necessary for the story he was telling. The death of an innocent child and my vengeance. You allowed it to happen.
