Directed by
Ingmar Bergman

One of cinema's seminal movies, this film passes the test of time, and is so revered, that it's been lovingly parodied.

A knight and his squire (Max Von Sydow and Gunnar Björnstrand), returning home from the Crusades through a plague-ridden land, meet Death (Bengt Ekerot) who engages the knight in a chess game as the pair debate the mysteries of life, faith and death itself.
