AN­TON CHEKHOV’S THE DUEL

Pasatiempo - - Moving Images -

Soviet-born Is­raeli Dover Koshashvili ( Late Mar­riage, 2001) has adapted Chekhov’s novella into a some­times slow-mov­ing but ul­ti­mately sat­is­fy­ing film fea­tur­ing an ex­cel­lent cast of mostly Ir­ish ac­tors, shot in English but with an au­then­ti­cally Rus­sian feel (beau­ti­fully filmed on the Croa­t­ian coast). It’s set at the turn of the last cen­tury, amid at­ti­tudes and times that are a-chang­ing. Not rated. 95 min­utes. The Screen, Santa Fe. ( Jonathan Richards) See re­view, Page 60.
