THE VIRGIN SPRING (CRITERION COLLECTION / 1960) (BLU-RAY)
Starring:  Birgitta Pettersson, Birgitta Valberg, Axel Duberg, Max von Sydow, Gunnel Lindblom
Directed By:  Ingmar Bergman

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. With austere simplicity, the director tells the story of the rape and murder of the virgin Karin, and her father Töre’s ruthless pursuit of vengeance against the three killers. 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.
