Disillusioned and exhausted after a decade of battle in the Crusades, a knight (Max von Sydow) challenges Death to a fateful game of chess on a desolate beach. Much studied, imitated, even parodied, but never outdone, The Seventh Seal was one of the benchmark foreign imports of America’s 1950s art-house heyday, pushing cinema’s boundaries and ushering in a new era of moviegoing.
