This powerful tale of morality, faith and revenge in medieval Sweden won Ingmar Bergman the first of his three Oscars® for Best Foreign Language Film. Max von Sydow performs with near-demonic possession as the family patriarch out to avenge the violation and murder of his beloved daughter in a world on the cusp of pagan tradition and the recently arrived Christian faith. Bergman's first collaboration with cinematographer Sven Nykvist is a tour de force of outdoor shooting, natural light and mobile camerawork. DIR/PROD Ingmar Bergman; SCR Ulla Isaksson; PROD Allan Ekelund. Sweden, 1960, b&w, 89 min. In Swedish with English subtitles. NOT RATED
