Bergman’s allegorical drama stars Max von Sydow as a knight trying to elude his own death.Vividly recreating a medieval world tormented by plague and superstition, Bergman’s allegorical drama –centred on a knight (von Sydow), returned from the Crusades, who challenges Death to a game of chess in order to postpone his demise –remains fascinating (and finally rather touching) as a study of faith in crisis. Packed with powerful images, it punctuates its bleakness with moments of pleasingly pawky humour.
