The Seventh Seal
Mr. Von Sydow is always paired, for me, with Ingmar Bergman. Pretty cool that he went from this to Hollywood.
I was chatting, in a game thing, with a girl from Sweden. I told her I loved Ingmar Bergman. She said, Who? The guy who made that movie about the Knight who played chess with Death, I said. Oh yea, she said. That comes on every year. And I amused myself, imagining little Scandinavian kids gathering around the TV once a year to watch The Seventh Seal the way we American kids used to do (back when) with Wizard of Oz
It is on HBOmax, by the way, and if, by chance, any of you film buffs haven't yet seen it--it's time: Pick a melancholy afternoon, when you're in a meditative mood, sit in front of the biggest screen you have, and watch.
(warning: not, particularly, cheerful, lol)
