Anton Chekhov's The Duel
A superb ensemble of British and Irish actors brings Chekhov's classic novella to vividly rendered life in an English-language adaptation by screenwriter Mary Bing.

Young gadabout Laevsky (Andrew Scott) convinces his mistress Nadya (Fiona Glascott) to leave her husband. With the thrill of conquest spent, however, and infected by a peculiar listlessness that may or may not be simple cowardice on his part, Laevsky hatches a scheme to abandon her.

Croatia stands in for the Caucasus in this visually gorgeous film (shot by master cinematographer Paul Sarossy) that is also distinguished by finely tuned performances.
