Immerse yourself in a rivalry for the ages. Ridley Scott’s directorial debut tells the tale of two French officers engaged in sixteen years’ worth of grudges and duels, set against the backdrop of the Napoleonic era. Based on the Joseph Conrad short story The Duel, which in turn was based on the lives of two real officers in Napoleon’s army, The Duellists is celebrated for its historical accuracy regarding Napoleonic uniforms, military conduct, and early-19th-century fencing techniques.
