The Seventh Seal
Det Sjunde Inseglet

Mary and I just watched The Seventh Seal, the classic 1950s Ingmar Bergman movie about a knight who returns from the Crusades to find the plague (and various superstitions) have taken over this homeland.

Along the way he plays chess with Death.

I'm trying to keep an open mind here, but this movie seemed like a mediocre university production--bad sets, cheesy lines and scene transitions that don't make sense.

Or maybe I'm missing something. If so, please tell me.

Oh, but on the upside, those Swedish women in the movie are very attractive--even in their medievalized outfits.


Heres' what film revier Roger Ebert, of the Chicago Sun-Times, said about the movie:

``The Seventh Seal'' (1957) has more in common with the silent film than with the modern films that followed it--including his own. Perhaps that is why it is out of fashion at the moment. Long considered one of the masterpieces of cinema, it is now a little embarrassing to some viewers, with its stark imagery and its uncompromising subject, which is no less than the absence of God.
