    ITEM#: 11968976

    Antonius Block (Max Von Sydow), a knight, returns from a 10-year crusade with his squire, Jons (Gunnar Bjornstrand), to find his homeland ravaged by the plague. When the black-cloaked figure of Death (Bengt Ekerot) appears to claim them, Block, whose war experiences have left him cynical about the existence of God and the afterlife, challenges Death to a game of chess to stall for time and gain some insight into the meaning of life before passing on. The game is intermittently paused and resumed during the journey home while Block and Jons meet several traveling companions, including a mute girl (Gunnel Lindblom) whom they save from a bandit, and a family of poor traveling players--Jof, a gentle visionary (Nils Poppe); his wife, Mia (Bibi Andersson); and their infant daughter. Block witnesses much suffering and anguish along the way (an encounter with a woman accused of witchcraft who is about to be burned at the stake is especially jarring) but also finds evidence of human kindness and love, prompting him to realize that even a single gesture of goodwill might make the long struggle of his existence worthwhile. The title of Ingmar Bergman's highly acclaimed allegorical film stems from the Book of Revelation.

    • Great Movie, Great Purchase
      Verified Purchase

      The DVD came in perfect condition, although the case was cracked/broken in a couple spots. The shipping said 2-15 days, and I actually expected it to arrive around the 15th day, but I was surprised on the 5th or 6th day. It was the exact DVD advertised. I've ordered movies online before, and all the "Extra Features" etc aren't always on the exact copy I receive. Also, some DVDs don't allow skipping ahead, chapter selection, etc, but this one is a legit DVD. I love watching foreign language movies in the original language, so it's great that this one comes in both Swedish and English. It's one of my all-time favorites, and I'm glad I bought it from Overstock. So, I'll be buying the others I want from here as well.
