Returning exhausted from the Crusades to find medieval Sweden gripped by the Plague, a knight (Max von Sydow) suddenly comes face-to-face with the hooded figure of Death, and challenges him to a game of chess. As the fateful game progresses, and the knight and his squire encounter a gallery of outcasts from a society in despair, Ingmar Bergman mounts a profound inquiry into the nature of faith and the torment of mortality. One of the most influential films of its time, and the breakthrough title for Janus Films at the American box-office, The Seventh Seal is a stunning allegory of man’s search for meaning and a work of stark visual poetry. (Dir. by Ingmar Bergman, 1957, Sweden, in Swedish with English subtitles, 97 mins., Not Rated)
