The Duellists

A simple “sorry” is not going to cut it.

Not in this world.

Deeply aggrieved by the perceived insults he’s received, Harvey Keitel dedicates his life to garnering some sweet revenge from Keith Carradine, one sword parry at a time.

The duo are officers under Napoleon, and frequently face fierce attacks from outside, as well.

But nothing keeps the home fires burning quite like a good old-fashioned fight to the finish between supposed brothers-in-arms.

Shot with staggering lushness by first-time feature film director Ridley Scott and cinematographer Frank Tidy, this epic tale of madness and honor is a beaut.
