Storyline

In ANTON CHEKHOV'S THE DUEL, escalating animosity between two men with opposing philosophies of life is played out against the backdrop of a decaying seaside resort along the Black Sea coast. Laevsky is a dissipated romantic given to gambling and flirtation. He has run off to the sea with beautiful, emotionally empty, Nadya, another man's wife. Laevsky has now grown tired of her, but two obstacles block his route to escape: he is broke, and he faces the absolute enmity of Von Koren, an arrogant zoologist and former friend who can no longer tolerate Laevsky's irresponsibility. Soon Laevsky confronts Von Koren, accusing him of meddling in his affairs, but Von Koren maneuvers a criticism Laevsky makes of their mutual friend, Dr. Samoylenko, into a challenge to a duel. Utterly discombobulated and honor bound, Laevsky agrees to this absurdity -- a duel it shall be! A duel as comically inadvertent as it is inevitable. Written by Anonymous

I am not quite sure.....
9 November 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I just felt bored and disconnected while watching this film. I also considered that although Andrew Scott is not a bad actor but definitely a mis-cast for the main character, as he looked so down-and-out like a bum or a homeless guy in this film, over-my-dead-body any woman would pay attention to him, albeit in love with him. The guy he played should have felt lucky enough that he could stay with a adulterous woman who still loved him and liked to live with him under the same roof. If I were her, living with a guy so spiritless, depressed and felt trapped, I might have flirted with more men to cheer up the days.

But the strongest feeling when watching this movie was how boring the life in that special era or period of time. There is nothing so special and worth paying attention to for the characters, the romances, the life styles of everybody. I even wonder this novelette written by Chekov should be treated as a classic literature, because it's so bored and so purposeless, not worth of further produced into a movie.

A very good film to someone else but not to me.
