DIY... Bergman movie watching

Late last night, I watched another Bergman movie, The Seventh Seal, a heart-wrenching story of an aged rock musician and his one-legged wife traveling in the Canadian Arctic who, despite numerous challenges, finally manage to save a baby seal's life (they failed six times before that, hence the title). The baby seal grows up, encounters a beautiful Swedish blonde and begins to ask the big questions of life and death.

Ok, hope that was enough nonsense for a Monday morning, take a look at the real synopsis. What can I say -- another movie that makes me want to watch again all of his movies that I've seen, and then all of the ones that I haven't. What an incredible talent.

  1. My first question was: what was he smoking; my second: where was I??? I think your monday morning nonesense would make for a great "alternative, Canadian movie" though...
