The Seventh Seal (Det sjunde inseglet)

Part of the European Classics Strand


Ingmar Bergman’s acclaimed masterpiece is a powerful medieval morality play that centres on a meeting between Antonius Block (Max von Sydow), a knight returning from the Crusades, and Death (Bengt Ekerot, white faced and dressed entirely in black). They meet on a stark beach, where Antonius tricks Death into playing a game of chess. Within the film’s famously long takes and gravitas, there are also moments of playful lustiness and even humour. A haunting, philosophical film – artistic cinema at its very best.
