    The Seventh Seal (Towa, 1957). Japanese B2 (20" X 29").
    This compelling film from director Ingmar Bergman is a thoughtful meditation on life, death, and the existence of God, told through the eyes of Antonius Block (Max von Sydow), a knight heading home through a plague-ravaged Europe after a decade spent on the battlefield. Along the way, he meets Death (Bengt Ekerot) and plays a game of chess, with his very life hanging in the balance. It's reported that Bergman drew inspiration from the period films of Akira Kurosawa, as well as murals he saw in a church in which his father used to preach. Offered here is a beautiful Japanese poster for this landmark art house film. It shows a small tear in the bottom border, and a minor corner bend, but is otherwise in exceptional condition. A classic film by any definition, paper on this title is hard to come by. Don't miss out on your chance to win this beauty. Rolled, Near Mint-. *****
