Spoofed by Woody Allen, French and Saunders, Bill and Ted (on their Bogus Journey) and Arnold Schwarzenegger in Last Action Hero, The Seventh Seal is an undoubted masterpiece of world cinema. It tells of a crusader knight (Max von Sydow) who refuses to accompany Death (Bengt Ekerot) until he has found a flicker of hope in a world stricken by plague, corruption and fear. While this is a highly personal film, in which director Ingmar Bergman (the son of the chaplain of the Swedish royal family) resolves his own doubts about the existence of God, its conclusions will leave even the most cynical viewer filled with optimism.
