BERGMAN'S 'VIRGIN SPRING'
- Manoj Kulkarni
On the current happenings...
I again remembered renowned Swedish filmmaker Ingmar Bergman's one of my most favourite films.. 'Jungfrukällan' ('The Virgin Spring'/1960) which is still contemporary!
|Main scene from film 'The Virgin Spring' (1960).|
|Horrible revenge scene from film 'The Virgin Spring' (1960).|
In this innocent young girl Karin on her way to church through forest encounter with two men & one boy whom she invite to eat. Then inhuman they rape & murder her. After that they unknowingly seek shelter at her home...And when her parents discovers that they raped & murdered their daughter...her father Tore kills them including boy!..The climax of this film is very touchy..where parents finds daughter & as they lift her head..from the ground a Spring begins to flow!
|Renowned Swedish Filmmaker Ingmar Bergman.|
Ingmar Bergman produced-directed 'The Virgin Spring' cinematographed by Sven Nykoist & edited by Oscar Rosander and music composed by Erik Nordgren! All artists acted naturally in which includes..main characters daughter Karin played by beautiful Birgitta Pettersson & father Tore acted by Bergman's fixed Max Von Sydow with others like Birgitta Valberg & Gunnel Lindblom!
|Touchy climax of film 'The Virgin Spring' (1960).|
This film won 'Oscar's 'Best Foreign Language Film' in 1961 and other awards in the international film festivals! Film contains a number of themes that question morals, vengeance and religious beliefs!..But the main thing is still the situation not changed!!
