The Seventh Seal (1957) dir. Ingmar Bergman

A personification of death appears to a Medieval knight who, having just returned home from the Crusades, challenges it to a game of chess. The two play their game as he and his squire travel their homeland, torn by the spread of the Plague. Considered by many as one of the greatest films of all time. A philosophical masterpiece that struggles to shed light on such subjects as life, death, religion and suffering. A timeless classic and must see for anyone interested in film and cinema.
Brilliant symbolism throughout, a subject of homage and parody countless times in popular culture. The film that established one of the outstanding masters of world cinema – Ingmar Bergman. Mind-blowing performances from lead and supporting roles. Gorgeous and harsh black and white imagery.


The Seventh Seal Cast: Max von Sydow, Gunnar Björnstrand, Bengt Ekerot, Bibi Andersson, Anders Ek
