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

The Festival Film for 2011. Bruno Chatelin Filmfestivals.com
26 April 2011 | by (France) – See all my reviews

Another classic masterpiece by the producer of James Ivory's jewels: "The Remains of The Day" and "Howards End". Smart entertainment, slow and delicate, exquisite and precise acting, spectacular and riveting Fiona Glascott, lazy ambiance to be cherished as one would sip a fine glass of vintage old port, watching the sun set on a peaceful landscape by the sea...

I cannot wait to see it travel through the world on the Festival Circuit, especially those places where old Russia means something. Of course the Title reveals much of the story, but Anton Chekhov's fans will not complain, on the contrary since the adaptation is so true. The Festival Film for 2011.
