The Duellists

Duelists.jpg On my brithday a few weeks ago I bought myself three DVD's: Casablanca, JFK, and the Duellists. I'd seen this last film only once, over ten years ago, but it's always stuck with me and when I saw it on the shelf, I snapped it up. It's a really great film, beautiful to look at and engaging to watch. Plus it's got lots of sword fighting, but sword fighting that's done in a very realistic way. It also happens to be the very first feature film made by Ridley Scott, which makes it something of an historical curiosity. Check it out!
