Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Few films have had as large a cultural impact as Ingmar Bergman's The Seventh Seal (Det sjunde inseglet). Disillusioned and exhausted after a decade of battling in the Crusades, a knight (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 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. In Swedish with English subtitles. The Criterion Collection.

Review:

"This is an uncompromising film, regarding good and evil with the same simplicity and faith as its hero." Roger Ebert (The Great Movies)
