The Seventh Seal

Is there a God? That is a good question.

The main character in the Seventh Seal comes home from the crusades to find that the plague is ravaging europe. Naturally he is questioning his faith, he has been through a lot, seen a lot and the future looks bleak.

In this film death is very real, so real that it takes on human form. The Crusader speaks with him and wagers a game of chess for more time on this earth. He needs more time, time to hear an answer.

Death is real.

My great aunt Mimi just passed away and her belief in God was powerful. She spoke in tongues and every time I left her house she would say, “bathe in the blood!” She said more than that but that always stuck out to me. I loved it. She was talking about the blood of Jesus. Don't fight, it's a good thing. We live in a time where you don't see a lot of people talking about God in movies and TV. It was refreshing to see a character praying on camera, speaking to God, even though he got no answer.

Where is Mimi now? I think she is with God. What happened to the crusader in this film? I'm not sure, didn't seem to end too well. I didn't particularly like what the director had to say, but it was beautifully stated.

Do you think there is nothing? Do you believe in God?

Cool.

One last thing.

Kitty kitty kitty kitty kitty kitty kitty kitty.

Love you Mimi.
