"Bergman's most accessible film...Guaranteed to thunder on the big screen." - Jonathan Crocker, Total Film

For many American filmgoers, THE SEVENTH SEAL provided the introduction to Bergman's work and helped establish his cult reputation in the U.S. Despite minimal sets and a small cast, it more effectively evokes the Fourteenth Century than many a big-budget epic. Returning from the Crusades, a hardened knight (Sydow) journeys through a countryside cruelly ravaged by plague and religious fanaticism. He meets Death face to face and challenges the Reaper to a game of chess for the ultimate stakes. In Swedish with English subtitles. New DCP digital restoration. (BS)
