Ingmar Bergman’s allegorical masterpiece drama centres on a knight (Max von Sydow) who returns from the Crusades only to find back home a world tormented by the Black Death and superstition. In the face of a silent God and questioning his own faith and purpose, he encounters Death who is ready to take him under its dark wing. But to defy fate, he challenges it to a game of chess.
