  • Few films have had as large a cultural impact as Ingmar Bergman’s The Seventh Seal (Det sjunde inseglet). Disillusioned and exhausted after a decade of battling in the Crusades, a knight (Max von Sydow) encounters Death on a desolate beach and challenges him to a fateful game of chess. Much studied, imitated, even parodied, but never outdone, Bergman’s stunning allegory of man’s search

  1. If you are a fan of films this is a must!! But then again you wouldn’t be checking it out if you weren’t. It had my friends and I talking for days! A game of Chess with Death, could there be a better story? Check out other films from the Criterion Collection, they are usually not on sale for long and quickly become hot items as well as great films for enjoyment!!

  4. Why is Amazon listing this as ‘discontinued by manufacturer’ when it is clearly still for sale on Criterion’s website? THE THIRD MAN is listed as Out of Print but not this. And since it only came out last summer why would this new transfer to the best home viewing format currently available be discontinued already ? Get your facts straight, guys. All in all, though, a stellar classic of World Cinema.

  5. A breathtaking transfer of a classic film and the extras are fantastic. Criterion is sometimes stingy with the extras but they more than make up for it here. ‘Bergman Island’ alone is worth the purchase price. After I watched the Swedish-language original I even dipped into the English dubbed soundtrack which was surprisingly good. One of my best purchases of the year!
