  1. Ethan's rating of the film The Virgin Spring

    This is an incredible film that shows that even the most civilized of people can do terrible things when pushed far enough and the anguish that follows from horrific things and the things we do to atone for those sins.

  2. FISCHER's rating of the film The Virgin Spring

    Classique du cinéma suédois confirmant à nouveau Bergman comme un très grand cinéaste. www.cinefiches.com

  3. Duncan Gray's rating of the film The Virgin Spring

    Bergman's atypical films are his most fun discoveries; I'd take Smiles of a Summer Night or Summer With Monika over the angst of Through a Glass Darkly. But this is "typical" Bergman at his best, and as a medieval tale of an elusive god, it may even top The Seventh Seal simply by demonstrating its point through drama instead of monologues. A simple fable, sprouting complex possible meanings from its little details.

  4. Fabio Osvaldo Carta's rating of the film The Virgin Spring

  5. Mr. Manna Bigger's rating of the film The Virgin Spring

    Rape and Revenge ante litteram, Bergman riesce a mantenere un livello narrativo semplice, lineare ed estremamente coerente per tutta la pellicola, tanto da rendere quasi superficiali i dialoghi. Paganesimo e cristianesimo si mischiano in uno scenario senza tempo, quasi fiabesco, descritto magistralmente dai giochi di luce e ombre. 5S

  7. Stian Gledje Bekkvik's rating of the film The Virgin Spring

  8. Alexander Dunkelberger's rating of the film The Virgin Spring

    I always like Bergman, but this is lesser work. Not to say it’s bad, in fact at times it is astounding, but just by the quality of his best stuff this doesn’t quite match up. Max von Sydow is powerful in this, as he tends to be in most things. As far as Bergman’s musings (that word is not near dark enough) on faith go, look towards the likes of “The Seventh Seal” and “Winter Light” instead.

  10. En Sangers Bøn's rating of the film The Virgin Spring

    A bit dated but my favorite from Bergman, with "Shame", "Hour of the wolf" and the "seventh seal"...This mix of temptation, innocence, superstition and religiosity in a bucolic middle age setting makes this film unique.

  11. Christopher M. Jones's rating of the film The Virgin Spring

    "God alone knows where guilt lies."

  12. ceknklsn's rating of the film The Virgin Spring

  13. Gerdrût's rating of the film The Virgin Spring

    "Because the devil seduces the innocent."

  14. Aardsy's rating of the film The Virgin Spring

    Heartbreaking and beautiful.

  15. Damazama21's rating of the film The Virgin Spring

    This is one of Bergman's most beautifully shot films. I loved the 'revenge' story and how it questions morality and what is right and wrong.

  16. Ekrem Ozturk's rating of the film The Virgin Spring

    The best cinematography so far.

  17. SpacePirate's rating of the film The Virgin Spring

    One of Bergmans triumphs, a beautiful heartbreaking film.

  18. Kamran's rating of the film The Virgin Spring

    A highly symbolic, literary, and performative fare from a master filmmaker, only slighted in its fixed role as parable. 84/100

  19. Thomas's rating of the film The Virgin Spring

    A masterpiece, one of Bergman's most lasting, influential and radiantly photographed. A timeless tale involving themes such as morality and religion, told through complex, subtlely understated emotions and relationships. Theatrical and stylised at times, Bergman manages to bring all the elements together to create a compelling drama both credible and visually captivating.
