I must confess that the first time I watched The Seventh Seal I did not like it at all. First, because I could barely speak Swedish and I guess that because I was so used to the American films style I was not used to watching a so low paced film. Maybe it was too cold as well when I watched it, I don’t know.
Now, 16 years fast forward I went to look at the Opera by my fellow citizen João and I could not say anything else than I loved it! I can’t tell if it was its simplicity or if it was the way it was finely seasoned with Brazilian percussion that I was so in love with the opera. What I know is that after 03 hours Opera I came home and the first thing I did was to give a second go on the film and yes, I enjoyed it!
The Seventh Seal was plaid in Stockholm from 28th august to September 1st as part of the program for the Bergman Festival
So I hope, from the bottom of my heart that IBOC gets all the support for their fantastic work of art. So if you know someone that can help them join/mix and unite cultures please give them a heads up!
They will be soon in Brazil in São Paulo, so please go experience “The Seventh Seal”. You won´t regret it.
I am getting crazy trying to paint and to organise my own space where I am going to exhibit my paintings on this year’s Konstrunda Järfälla. Very exciting! This time I will have Sigrid Johansson, my pretty “God daughter”. She is making her debut, but she is really good!
I hope we will get a lot of visitors. It will be cool to get to know my neighbours and to receive my dear friends.
