Summer Film Classics: World Cinema Classics: The Seventh Seal

Not rated, 92 min. Directed by Ingmar Bergman. Starring Max von Sydow, Gunnar Björnstrand, Bengt Ekerot and Bibi Andersson.

A knight, on his way home from the Crusades, questions the existence of God and why He has allowed the Black Plague to ravage his country. He plays chess with Death in what is now a classic trope of cinema. This is the film that put Bergman on the international map. (Double bill: Wild Strawberries.)
