''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.

"21.10. DVD Uusintakatselu. Olen nähnyt tämän ainakin kaksi kertaa ennen. Toki varmaan 15 vuotta sitten. Yllätyin silti, kuinka humoristinen tämä olikaan. Muun muassa tämän takia nautin näistä uusintakatseluista, varsinkin pitkän ajan jälkeen. Joka kerta on vähän erilainen. Nimeomaan visuaalisesti ehkä jopa Mansikkapaikkaakin isommin kuva toisensa jälkeen aivan käsittämättömän kaunis."

" Date: 2/21/2019 Viewed: Amazon Prime (Rental) Rewatch Note: I haven't seen this movie in a long and wanted to revisit this film. I love this movie, even more, the first time when I saw this movie when I was younger. Everything about this movie is fantastic. The cinematography is beautiful to look at and the atmosphere was very well done. I love how dark and grim this movie feels because this movie feels like a horror movie at times. I also love the story and all of the characters in this mov"

" Notes: This masterpiece left a big impression on me and I should definitely rewatch it at some point. Indeed, the directing, the story and the acting, above all by Max van Sydow, was nothing short of amazing. I was above all impressed by the ominous chess game with Death, one of the most legendary film scenes ever put together. Still, like I said before, even though I was impressed, somehow, there were good chunks of the movie that literally went over my head. Later on, I watched ‘Fanny and "
