Every game of chess but one ends with a checkmate, something which hardly ever happens once players have acquired some experience. The one exception is when Phiona resigns a game which is treated as a personal crisis, when in fact it's normal to resign from hopeless positions - especially when playing with the black pieces, for this brings the disadvantage of not making the first move.
Never seen in the movie are any games ending with a draw, which in chess is extremely common. See more »

You must consider the other side of your board.

Nowadays you beat me so easily. Here I think strategy must run in your blood... Did one of your ancestors command a great army?
These pieces are my army.

Losing teaches me...

Amazing and inspirational
I loved this movie!
So different to the usual American based movies, and the story was told so beautifully.
I'm not going to lie, the movie was long, but it definitely helped build the suspense.
The acting was amazing and the casting was spectacular.
The characters really stand out. I also really liked that they got the real people and the actors who played them at the end. It was a cute touch.
This movie should have been hyped up more.
