Watch for symbolism in Bergman's movies. The knight's page is his alter ego. Other obvious symbols are the young family (Holy Family). Definitely a thinking persons movie. Game of chess Who is really winner and loser. Don't need to know Bible well but Seventh Seal is in book of Revelation.

The Seventh Seal is simply one of the most brilliants films ever made. It's amazing to see Bergman's personal reflections on life, death, and God in an entertaining way. The Seventh Seal is entertaining philosophy.

A wonderful performance by Max Von Sydow and an excellent meditation on mortality.
