The Seventh Seal

Det sjunde inseglet

Directed by Ingmar Bergman
Sweden, 1957
Drama, Fantasy


Disillusioned and exhausted after a decade of battling in the Crusades, a knight (Max von Sydow) encounters Death on a desolate beach and challenges him to a fateful game of chess. Much studied, imitated, even parodied, but never outdone, this is a stunning allegory of man’s search for meaning.
