A Satire and a Homage to Bergmann's The Seventh Seal
9 August 2000 | by (Porto Alegre, Brazil) – See all my reviews

This short movie is both a homage and a satire of the much revered Ingmar Bergmann movie "The Seventh Seal". The basic premise is that a man, distraught by unemployment and love troubles, goes to a bar intent on killing himself, and is visited by the Grim Reaper himself. In a satire of Bergmann's, this Death is more witty, and yet retains philosophy to his/her/its core. As in The Seventh Seal, the duo gambles for the mortal's life... in most unexpected fashion. I recommend this movie to all cinephilles who can understand the in-joke -- all others would be lost within this superb comedic short.
