Europe, 1709. Russia and Sweden are at war. Two French duelists are exiled by King Louis XIV of France: one to the side of Czar Peter the Great of Russia, the other to the side of King Charles XII of Sweden. Although separated by war and allegiance, fate has not finished with them.Written by
One of the many period sets was a detailed and historically accurate recreation of a small 18th-century Ukrainian village, which was designed and built from the ground up in a field in the countryside. Other notable full-size, historically accurate sets designed and built for the film were an 18th-century Polish inn and a 22,000 square-foot reproduction of King Louis XIV's Court at Versailles.

I just watched the movie and all i can say is "WOW!" This is a truly beautiful film. It has everything that i personally want from a good movie. Lots of fighting a action, hot girls, an interesting plot, lots of blood, humor, beautiful camera work, a big ass battle toward the end, and even some sex! I just love it. I heard it was good when i started watching it, but I was just astonished how unbelievably brilliant yet simple it was. I was excited throughout the whole thing.
Oh my God, its so good. Everyone has to watch it! No, I take that back. Don't watch it, if you expect lots of romance, and stuff like that. Also don't if don't want to see any gore or brutality cause there's quite a lot of it there. I was surprised about it. Its not like I don't like it, we are all just so used to the good old PGs or PG-13s that Hollywood is throwing at us twice a month.
Anyway, watch it, you will not regret it, I promise.
