Sjunde inseglet, Det (The seventh Seal)(1957) Drama

Sjunde inseglet, Det (The Seventh Seal)(1957) - A really compelling film where a knight returning home from the Crusades meets death on a beach in Sweden and buys time to get back home to see the wife he left 10 years earlier by challenging Death to a game of chess. Through the journey home we see a country side rotting with the Black Plague, and the people and the knight deal with the questions of the meanings life and death.
It is a really remarkable movie and worth every one of the 105 minutes it took to watch. I will re-review this at a later date and try to give it the time and thought it deserves.
Rating (8.4)
