116 – The Seventh Seal (1957)

And that's now Sarah Jessica Parker was born

And that’s how Sarah Jessica Parker was born

Ingmar Bergmans Seventh Seal is about a group of seals and their yearly migration back to where they were born to breed.I just made that up,The Seventh Seal is about a Knight and his Knave and they’re journey home to Sweden after the crusades when,and it’s as good now as it was then.They land off the coast to a plague infested Sweden with people dropping dead left right an centre.It’s on the beach that the Knight encounters Death.The Knight challenges Death to  a game of chess,he does this to try and delay his death and get back to his castle to see his wife one last time.Along the way he picks up a few other people and tries to help them out of the plague infested areas and takes them to his castle.The Seventh Seal is a clever film,it has a great balance of humour,just watch out for Jons,and some raises some good points about death and philosophises about God and what happens after.We had to watch this one in college way back
