SEVENTH SEAL, THE
[DET SJUNDE INSEGLET]
Ingmar Bergman's best-known and most iconic film is a touchstone of international cinema's golden age in the 1950s and '60s — and has been essential, rite-of-passage viewing for every film buff since. Knight Max von Sydow returns from crusading to discover his country ravaged by plague — and comes face to face with Death himself. Unwilling to go quietly, von Sydow challenges Death to a game of chess. An allegorical parade of human foibles and suffering pass by as the two match wits. 1957 Special Jury Prize, Cannes Film Festival. DIR/SCR Ingmar Bergman; PROD Allan Ekelund. Sweden, 1957, b&w, 96 min. In Swedish with English subtitles. NOT RATED
