THE SEVENTH SEAL (Ingmar Bergman, 1956)

"Is life just a delaying game with death, a bad deal if you don’t play chess? And does the silence of God rob the sufferings of life of any meaning? THE SEVENTH SEAL confirmed Ingmar Bergman’s international reputation, and virtually gave him authorial rights over ultimate questions about our place in the scheme of things. His metaphors can be parodied – Max von Sydow’s chess match, the Dance of Death along a skyline – but the questions can’t be wrested from him." - BFI

    I'm really looking forward to seeing this film and the others going to it. Not sure if I need to get to BFI really early to get a ticket for this or if it should be ok just before meeting up?

      It might be a good idea to book a ticket online or arrive a little early, as there are only 30 seats left.
