About the Movie

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.

The Seventh Seal

This was a very interesting older film. The story was very simple, but the characters and story line were rich in their complexities. I also liked how the film developed the opposing views of the major actors. This was a period piece in its natural form. It was straight forward in its story telling. The acting was well done.
