THE SEVENTH SEAL
A Knight and his squire are home from the crusades to find the plague sweeping their country. As they approach home, Death appears to the knight and tells him it is his time. The knight challenges Death to a chess game for his life. The Knight and Death play as the cultural turmoil envelopes the people around them as they try, in different ways, to deal with the upheaval the plague has caused.
The film was restored and digitised from the original negative and the final mix on magnetic tape was carried out by Swedish Film Institute.
