Summary
A knight and his squire, coming home from a crusade to a country ravaged by the plague, are stopped by Death, who tells the knight it is his time. The knight challenges Death to a chess match for his life.
Allegorical tale of a medieval knight returning home from the Crusades only to find a plague-ridden landscape and the figure of Death waiting to take him away. The knight challenges Death to a game of chess--if the man wins, then he shall be spared, if Death wins, then the man must go with him willingly. This DVD includes the following supplements: audio commentary by noted film historian Peter Cowie and an annotated, illustrated Bergman filmography, featuring excerpts from the films Wild Strawberries and The Magician with commentary.
