The Seventh Seal

As Europe falls to the clutches of the Black Death, a knight (a 27-year-old Max von Sydow) who has recently returned from the Crusades is confronted by the figure of Death. Hoping to outwit the grim reaper, the knight challenegs Death to a game of chess in hopes of extending his life; the challenge is accepted and Ingmar Bergman’s 1957 masterpiece is underway. The boldness of The Seventh Seal has only deepened over the half-century since its creation. Themes of faith, death and the very meaning of existence, not unsimilar to what we confront at Metro Times each week ,  are layed bare. In Swedish with English subtitles.
