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, Bergman’s stunning allegory of man’s search for meaning, The Seventh Seal (Det sjunde inseglet), was one of the benchmark foreign imports of America’s 1950s art-house heyday, pushing cinema’s boundaries and ushering in a new era of moviegoing.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Essentially intellectual, yet emotionally stimulating, too, it is as tough -- and rewarding -- a screen challenge as the moviegoer has had to face this year.
Fresh: Film has superior technical narrative, impressive lensing and thesping.
Fresh: Bergman's visually striking medieval morality play [was] the work that gained him an international reputation.
Fresh: This is an uncompromising film, regarding good and evil with the same simplicity and faith as its hero.
