Two Line Reviews - #187

Movie: Det sjunde inseglet (or) The Seventh Seal (Swedish, 1957)

Plot: A knight who is in the quest of knowing more about God, his brave squire, a vagabond family living a content life, a worried peasant woman all rendezvous in a town affected by plague & during the journey from there, the knight meets 'Death' with whom he plays Chess & 'Death' gets a hold on the lot of them except the vagabond couple who escape its clutches.

  • Ingmar Bergman goes philosophical & the film is so much a weirdo stuff that some scenes remain beyond comprehension.
  • The man who plays the squire captivates with his talk-the-talk stuff. The knight man gives nice company with his confused mindset on the existence of God.
  • The supporting party keep the going alive with their roles.
The plagued lady, Jesus idol procession & some other things seem unattached to the film's course.

Abstract & heavily philosophical; Incomprehensible to a large extent.
