Ingmar Bergman · Sweden · 1957 · 96 mins · PG · Swedish with subtitles


Ingmar Bergman's masterpiece centres on a meeting between a knight (Max Von Sydow) returning from the Crusades and Death (Bengt Ekerot). Cowled, pasty-faced and vaguely sardonic, Death is tricked into staying his scythe when Block challenges him to a game of chess. Full of haunting, iconic images and a touch of hopeful humanity, The Seventh Seal is cinema at its most artful, a philosophical meditation on the meaning(lessness) of this mortal coil. --BBCi“*****!
