"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.

"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."

"19.12. DVD, 1st viewing I was undecided if I should give it a 3.5 or a 4.0 but I'll be nice today and give it the extra half-star for (once again) outstanding photography by Sven Nykvist. The sound design was fantastic as well: bird calls, the rooster crowing, etc. It's a pretty straight-forward, story-centered film for Ingmar Bergman which isn't a bad thing. But still I think it was a bit too grim for its own good (although I chuckled a bit at the end:

"14.9.2011 Vähän sellaista kuin odotinkin eli ei niin ajatuksia herättävä Bergman-leffa. Silti elokuva sai jälleen pohtimaan moraalidilemmoja kostosta. Lopussa olevasta Max Von Sydovin rukoilusta plussaa. Siitä välittyi niin hienosti se epävarmuus jumalan hyvyyttä kohtaan eli toisin sanoen Teodikean ongelma. Henkilökohtaisella tasolla kohtaus iski, koska juuri itsekin olen käynyt näitä asioita päässäni läpi nuorempana. Täytyy nyt myös sanoa, että näyttää siltä, että tuo"
