<i>The Virgin Spring</i> 1960 film by Ingmar Bergman

The Virgin Spring is a 1960 Swedish rape and revenge film directed by Ingmar Bergman.

The story was adapted by screenwriter Ulla Isaksson from a 13th-century Swedish ballad, "Töres döttrar i Wänge".

Given criticism of the historical accuracy of his 1957 film The Seventh Seal, he also invited Isaksson to write the screenplay. Other influences included the 1950 Japanese film Rashomon. Max von Sydow played Töre.
