Duelyant (The Duelist)
This glossy and handsomely-mounted film is set in 19th century Czarist Russia and stars Pyotr Fyodorov as the handsome and suitably dashing Yakovlev, a former army officer who now earns his money by winning duels for other people, who happen to be less skilled than him. But on his return to St Petersburg, he starts to question his chosen profession when he meets the beautiful Princess Marfa (Yuliya Khlynina), the sister of naïve Prince Tuchov, who is set to be his next opponent. THE DUELIST is beautifully staged and shot with a lush sense of period, Russian style.
