“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

"It is precise, intelligent, civilized, and because it never for a moment mistakes its narrative purpose."
★★★★ Vincent Canby, New York Times

"Keitel is jaunty and menancing and Carradine more determined and a bit troubled but also caught up in this strange need of one to prove honor and the other slaking a twisted nature."

Armand d'Hubert (Keith Carradine) and Gabriel Féraud (Harvey Keitel) are French soldiers under Napoleon. A trivial quarrel between d'Hubert and Féraud escalates into a lifelong grudge, and, as war rages on, the officers repeatedly challenge one another to violent sword and pistol duels. After 15 years, both men have distinguished themselves through their service and become generals, however, their mutual hatred never ceases, even when the initial cause of their rivalry is forgotten.
