Even though I've only now seen five of his films, I could say that I'm a pretty big Bergman fan, though this one did disappoint me. I know many consider it to be one of his finer works, but I personally could not see it; it's practically nothing compared to the genius of The Seventh Seal or Wild Strawberries or Persona, and, in fact, it's not really even that good of a film, it's just "Pretty Good... read more

“Even though I've only now seen five of his films, I could say that I'm a pretty big Bergman fan, though this one did disappoint me.

I thought that the whole premise and story-line was completely fascinating and intriguing and there were moments of pure, utter brilliance. However, for every brilliant moment there was also one that was not-so-brilliant and a good amount of these scenes were really quite dull. I don't know why I felt this way, but I actually almost fell asleep in a couple parts.

"OmU - Swedish with English subtitles After having seen "Persona" from Ingmar Bergman I've been longing for another one of his movies. But The Virgin Spring didn't fulfil my expectations. It wasn't a bad movie, but I was just not that excited, as I wanted it to be. But I will definitely keep on watching Ingmar Bergman's movies. "

"Kirjasto-DVD Bergman on parin tältä nähdyn leffan perusteella ohjaajana hieno, mutten tämän hidastempoista ja perusteellista tyyliä silti kovin usein jaksaisi katsoa. Jälleen pureudutaan ihmismielen syvimpiin sisuksiin, katsotaan mikä on lähimmäisen rakkauden palkka, millaisena Jumalan pyytämä anteeksianto näkyy kovemman paikan tullein hurskaimmassakin yksilössä ja miten kostaja yrittää tuoda itselleen mielenrauhan pestäkseen itsensä puhtaaksi omista hirmuteoistaan. Vaikken"

"9.9. Juonikuvion ns. yksinkertaisuudella ei ole kyllä pätkääkään väliä, kun pääsee näin liikuttavan kauniita kuvia ihailemaan. Toimi varsin loistavasti mielentilassa, jossa Bergmania ei lähtökohtaisesti edes pitäisi katsella."

"Ingmar Bergman presents a dark fable/nightmare involving rape, murder, troublesome coincidence, and religious subtext. Inspired Wes Craven's Last House on the Left. "

" Very possible the first rape-revenge movie, but compared to many exploitation or actionmovies in the genre this is mainly a graceful and powerful drama directed by a master of film, Ingmar Bergman."
