Bergman was greatly influenced by Akira Kurosawa when he made The Virgin Spring, as evinced in its ominous use of dark and shade and lengthy sequences without dialogue. However, this is more than pastiche. Although the Christian ending with which Bergman feels obliged to conclude the film doesn't quite sit well in a movie in which God is as palpably absent as in any Bergman movie, the slow, remorseless pace of the murder and subsequent retribution bring to mind Krzysztof Kieslowski's A Short Film About Killing in their sense of the futility of vengeance. --David Stubbs --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
'The Virgin Spring' is a good story about a father trying to avenge the rape and murder of his daughter. It is a good story, but not something which will blow your mind.Published on Dec 7 2003 by Dhaval Vyas
