The Seventh Seal
Cert: PG Year: 1957 Length: 92 mins Language: Swedish
Ingmar Bergman's dark masterpiece … is a radical work of art that reaches back to scripture, to Cervantes and to Shakespeare to create a new dramatic idiom of its own. Released 50 years ago, it's as fresh as a glass of ice-cold water…The movie fiercely addresses itself to the agony of belief, the need to believe in a God who remains silent, mysterious, absent. It is a work of art that grabs the audience by the lapels, believers and unbelievers alike, and demands not answers, exactly, but an acknowledgement that this is the most important question, the only question: why does anything exist at all? Even after half a century, The Seventh Seal is an untarnished gold-standard of artistic and moral seriousness.'
Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
