Description: Joseph Conrad's short story The Duellists is about a relic of bygone years — the gentleman's code of honor. D'Hubert, a well-bred and charming lieutenant in Napoleon's army, is challenged to a duel by Feraud, an ill-willed and obstreperous fellow officer. He insists that D'Hubert has maligned his character. There is also in his animosity toward him a hint of class hatred. And so they fight. Once the battle is over, Feraud insists on challenging D'Hubert again and again and again. In the next fifteen years, the milieu changes, the weapons are different, one is wounded, the other can't continue. Neither is killed. Ridley Scot ... (more)

" Every shot look like a painting and the location work in France makes the most out of the location. Fascinating story based upon historical event, good orchestral score and Ridley Scott already with his film debut delivering a masterpiece of a film. "

A good movie

“Even though Ridley Scott also had some massive up and downs in his career, I have always been interested in his work and, therefore, I was really eager to see his directing debut. Anyway, Scott will always be remembered for 'Alien', 'Blade Runner' and 'Gladiator' but many people will probably forget that he actually started his career with this little gem. Indeed, it is basically a completely forgotten feature and I think it’s too bad because it is actually pretty good. To be honest, it seemed to be a rather big and ambitious project for a debuting director but, with someone like Ridley Scott, you shouldn’t expect anything less. Indeed, when you watch the damned thing, it is rather hard to believe that it was, in fact, his directing debut because it was so well done. Harvey Keitel and ” read more
