I was expecting a movie that was almost entirely just a man sitting alone with death playing chess and generally being philosophical and what have you. What I got was a mildly amusing trip across the plague-ridden Swedish countryside with some talk about the absence of god kind of thrown on top. Naturally, that doesn't mean it's a bad movie, just that I didn't think much of it. I did like the ending, though. Maybe I'll enjoy it more if I watch it again some months from now.

A chess game. Life. Death. Faith. A response to the most ancient questions of the human being.
