Stolen Spring (Danish : Det Forsømte Forår) is a 1993 Danish film adaptation of Hans Scherfig's novel The Stolen Spring .

Stolen Spring was shot in 1993 starring some of the biggest stars in Danish Cinema, such as Frits Helmuth.

The book is a collective novel, in that the protagonist isn't a single person, but rather a group. Some critics think that the movie remake has failed to retain this and other thematics, and therefore does not deliver Scherfig's socialist message.
