Description

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.


The Bergman Century

To celebrate the 100th anniversary of Ingmar Bergman's birth, the Film Society of Minneapolis St. Paul proudly brings 16 of his greatest films to the Twin Cities. Co-sponsored by the Embassy of Sweden and the American Swedish Institute.
