Added DiffLines:

* DeliberateValuesDissonance: The movie goes a long way reproducing the mentality of the medieval Swedish countryside, a lot of which will appear strange to a modern audience. At the same time [[RealityIsUnrealistic it averts this trope]], exposing the rather liberal and cheerful relationship between Karin and her parents, standing in a striking contrast to the sheep-like obedience expected of every child that, according to most people, was prevalent in that time period.

''The Virgin Spring'' (''Jungfrukällan'') is a 1960 [[UsefulNotes/{{Sweden}} Swedish]] film directed by Creator/IngmarBergman and starring Creator/MaxVonSydow, partly [[OlderThanTheyThink based on the]] Swedish [[OlderThanPrint medieval ballad]] [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Töres_döttrar_i_Wänge ''Töre's daughters in Vänge'']]. Von Sydow is Töre, a prosperous 14th century Christian farmer who sends his innocent virgin daughter Karin off to carry candles to church for matins. Accompanying her is Ingeri the servant girl, who is heavily pregnant. Ingeri is a secret pagan, and she resents Karin so much that she prays to Odin to bring a curse down upon Karin.

''The Virgin Spring'' was written by Ulla Isaksson, and thus is one of the few Ingmar Bergman films that Bergman did not write as well as direct. It won the AcademyAwardForBestForeignLanguageFilm. Twelve years later, it was remade by Creator/WesCraven, with a lot more blood and gore, as ''Film/TheLastHouseOnTheLeft''.
