Winner of the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film, The Virgin Spring is a harrowing tale of faith, revenge, and savagery in medieval Sweden. Starring Max von Sydow, the film is both beautiful and painful in its depiction of a world teetering between paganism and Christianity, and of one father’s need to avenge the death of a child.
