THE LAST DUEL

26/09/2021, 21:15, IDEAL

After “Gladiator” and “Kingdom of Heaven”, Ridley Scott returns to the historical film genre, with a film based on real events about the last formal duel in France in the midst of The Hundred Years' War. The charismatic acting trio of Adam Driver, Jodie Comer and Matt Damon follow three aspects of the story as a direct reference to Kurosawa’s Rashomon and the script signals the reunion of the Damon-Affleck duo, 24 years after the Oscar-winning “Good Will Hunting”. Official selection at the Venice International Film Festival.

A famous knight greatly skilled in battle challenges a respected nobleman to a duel, when the former’s wife accuses the latter of abuse. No one believes the wife and knight asks the king to approve the request for a duel. However, in case he’s defeated his wife will be burnt at stake for false accusation. A duel of honour, based on a true story, brings veteran Ridley Scott back to the moving, great spectacle cinema. Adam Driver fights with Matt Damon, who co-writes the script with Ben Affleck, 24 years after ‘Good Will Hunting’. A ‘Rashomon’ of the Middle Ages that becomes a topical comment on a woman’s courage to stand up for her truth. P.G.
