The Seventh Seal: The Criterion Collection Blu-ray
SKU ID #354579
When death comes knocking, ask him to play chess; it's a good way to stall the inevitable. That's what weary knight Max Von Sydow (as Antonius Block) does on his way home from the Crusades. Death would like to take him but Block has some questions first that are best discussed over a game of chess. This metaphysical challenge continues as Block makes his way across the countryside and runs into all sorts of characters, all of whom are also struggling with life-and-death issues. This Blu-ray version of "The Seventh Seal" (1957) is a tour-de-force film from visionary director Ingmar Bergman that is equal parts challenging and entertaining.
