''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.

“Ingmar Bergman es un prodigio en el mundo del cine no-comercial, europeo, super niche, super anti-espectáculo y creo que ya saben a dónde quiero llegar. Su marca personal es ser sombrío, tratar temas filosóficos y psicológicos vía simbolismos y pacing lento. De no ser un entendido del medio a profundidad, con aquello que te gusta siendo la diversión nunca tendrás una tarde divertida con él. Eso es también el porqué no gusto de sus obras en comparación a la mayoría (bueno, a cierta mayoría). Las emociones son parte importante de toda obra, sin ellas no puedes cautivar a tus espectadores.

Creo que por ello aprecio más El Séptimo Sello, parcialmente cómico y depresivo, es un viaje de autodescubrimiento y un cuestionamiento religioso. Los temas son acordes dado que ” read more

" Notes: By now, I have seen only 6 of his movies directed by Ingmar Bergman and, so far, I can’t say I’m a big fan of his work. Still, this masterpiece left a big impression on me though. Indeed, the directing, the story and the acting, above all by Max van Sydow, were pretty strong. I was above all impressed by the ominous chess game with Death, one of the most legendary film scenes ever put together.

""Questa è la mia mano, posso muoverla, e in essa pulsa il mio sangue. Il sole compie ancora il suo alto arco nel cielo. E io... Io, Antonius Block, gioco a scacchi con la Morte." Il capolavoro gemello del '57 si dimostra all'ennesima visione di un niente superiore. Perchè il b/n (restaurato) è bellissimo. Perchè unisce dolorosa tragicità, brillante commedia (la vita è anche gioia, no?), dolcezza romantica - dio, la scena delle fragole... Perchè tutti noi siamo Antonius Bloch."

"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."
