''I met Death today. We are playing chess.''

A man seeks answers about life, death, and the existence of God as he plays chess against the Grim Reaper during the Black Plague.

Max von Sydow: Antonius Block

The Seventh Seal is dark, beautiful, meaningful, and indeed explores the most serious themes regarding faith and search for the Divine; Known by man... read more

"I shall remember this moment: the silence, the twilight, the bowl of strawberries, the bowl of milk. Your faces in the evening light. Mikael asleep, Jof with his lyre. I shall try to remember our talk. I shall carry this memory carefully in my hands as if it were a bowl brimful of fresh milk. It will be a sign to me, and a great sufficiency."

Few have been the times when someone says "I love you" on screen and those words resonate to the audience with the same tenacity they resonate to who they're said to in the story. Bergman's The Seventh Seal accomplishes this within it's first 15 minutes. This alone is an accomplishment worthy of applauding. The rest of the movie is such as well. Seal deals with death as a theme as extensively as C... read more

After a decade of battling in the Crusades, a knight challenges Death to a fateful game of chess in Ingmar Bergman’s stunning allegory of man’s apocalyptic search for meaning.

ALL-TIME 100 Revisited (20 movies items)

"The Colbert Report has an occasional segment called “Cheating Death,” which is introduced by the image of Stephen facing the hooded figure of Death over a chessboard. It’s one of many pop-culture tributes over the past half-century — a Woody Allen short-story parody, the Van Halen song “The Seventh Seal,” whole segments of Monty Python and the Holy Grail — to Ingmar Bergman’s medieval morality play. With this grand pageant of a knight (Max von Sydow) who plays chess with Death (B"

The most boring journey!

“OCTOBER 17TH, 2015

After I watched The Seventh Seal, I think that Ingmar Bergman isn't my favorite director.

I said that I never like movies about religion, include Christianity and Islam like The Passion of Joan of Arc (1928), Ben-Hur (1959), Fanny and Alexander (1982) (another movie of Bergman) and A Separation (2010) because I'm Buddhism.

I like the song that described the emotion, the feeling of characters. But I can't understand the ending of the movie:

+The girl's feeling and her face.

+The appearance of the Death.

+The scare of Antonius, the Danse Marabe.

+The happiness of Joseph and his family when they saw the Danse Marabe.

So, who can explain me the ending of the movie and why almost people love this ” read more
