Bravo! What a gem,
This review is from: Duellists [VHS] (VHS Tape)
This is my absolute all time favorite movie. A very realistic depiction of campaigning during the napoleonic wars, and of the brutal, non-romantic aspects of the ancient practice of dueling. The soundtrack is also quite superb. Love the opening scene where the mayor of strasbourgs' nephew is skewered. Harvey Keitel gives a wonderful performance as the mad-dog Faraud. With all the junk out now on DVD, why is this movie still available only on VHS? What a shame.
