Monday Movie: The Duellists

When the dispassionate D'Hubert is sent to arrest fellow soldier Feraud for duelling, Feraud takes it about as badly as he possibly could, doggedly seeking D'Hubert out time and again, year after year. And despite his better nature, honour moves D'Hubert to accept each challenge and risk his life in each new duel.

The Duellists - Ridley Scott's first feature film, adapted from a short story by Joseph Conrad - takes in gorgeous landscapes, gritty period realism and tense duels, while musing on the nature of honour and duty.
