The Seventh Seal (Sweden 1956)

Rating: ***
Director: Ingmar Bergman
Cast: Max Von Sydow

A fascinating look at a knight (Max Von Sydow) coming home from the Crusades and his questions about life and morality. He meets up with some travelling entertainers and challenges Death to a game of chess, which he ultimately loses. Very interesting and well made, with an appropriately creepy and despondant feel.
