Trailer of the famous Anton Chekhov's story THE DUEL

The New York Times Critics’ Pick ANTON CHEKHOV’S “THE DUEL” breathes new life into a classic Chekhovian tale. Working with the master cinematographer Paul Sarossy (The Sweet Hereafter), director Dover Kosashvili (Late Marriage) has made a gorgeously cinematic and accessible movie that is sensuous, passionate, dramatic and peppered with delightful moments of levity inherent to the great novella. Set in a seaside resort in the Caucasus, the story centers on n'er do well, Laevsky (Andrew Scott) and his illicit relationship with his mistress Nadya (Fiona Glascott). Laevsky has convinced Nadya to leave her husband for him, but now wants to abandon her. A brilliant ensemble cast of British and Irish actors strikes just the right balance. “The performances are excellent all around, with Andrew Scott mesmerizing and the gorgeous Fiona Glascott making vividly clear why her character drives all men to distraction.” (Hollywood Reporter) “Adultery, betrayal, blackbail, drunken antics...the most successful literary adaptation I’ve seen since...Lady Chatterley.” (The Village Voice)
