Friday, May 18 – 7:30 PM INGMAR BERGMAN
Double Feature: THE VIRGIN SPRING (JUNGFRUKÄLLAN), 1960, Janus Films, 89 min. Dir. Ingmar Bergman. In this period piece set in medieval Sweden, Max von Sydow plays a deeply religious rural farmer who questions his faith when his daughter is raped and murdered. His response to the crime facilitates a classic Bergman inquiry into the existence of God and the juxtaposition between brutality and beauty that informs daily life. An uncommonly poetic treatment of material harsh enough to have inspired, among many other films, Wes Craven’s LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT. In Swedish with English subtitles.
THE DEVIL’S EYE (DJÄVULENS ÖGA), 1960, Janus Films, 84 min. Dir. Ingmar Bergman. This sophisticated fantasy - the last Bergman film to be shot by the great Gunnar Fischer - is an engaging satire on petit-bourgeois morals. The Devil suffers from an inflamed eye, which he informs Don Juan (Jarl Kulle) can only be cured if a young woman’s chastity is breached. So the legendary lover ascends from Hell and sets about seducing the innocent pastor’s daughter, Britt-Marie (Bibi Andersson). Bergman’s dialogue bubbles with an irony reminiscent of his beloved Molière, and the music of Domenico Scarlatti (played by Bergman’s fourth wife, Käbi Laretei) underscores the joy that invests much of the film. In Swedish with English subtitles.
