Keith Carradine and Harvey Keitel star in Ridley Scott's feature debut, a visually ravishing drama about two officers in Napolean's army who violently confront each other in a series of savage 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, honour and violence. Scott's movie weaves its very compelling story through to an unexpected outcome and was awarded 'Best Debut Film' at the 1977 Cannes Film Festival.
