Keith Carradine and Harvey Keitel star in this dramatic film about two officers in Napoleon's army who violently confront each other in a series of duels. The duels begin as a reaction to a minor incident and escalate into a consuming passion that rules the lives of both men for a period of 30 years. Based on Joseph Conrad's story, THE DUELLISTS explores the themes of obsession, honor and violence. This visually breathtaking film weaves a compelling story through to an unexpected outcome. Winner of Best Debut Film and nominated for the Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival. Nominated for Best Cinematography and Best Costume Design at the BAFTA Awards. "The richness of Scott's visuals, the excellence of the performances and the depth of the themes combine to make a minor masterpiece." - David Hughes, Empire Magazine
