Anton Checkov's The Duel (2010)

Direcetd by: Dover Koshashvili
Country: USA

Plot: Gambling, alcohol and flirtations consummated in an impossibly beautiful countryside hold obvious attractions for Laevsky. But he's brought up short when financial ruin and his mistress's sexual dalliances lead to a violent denouement.
Quick comment: Lacks some enthusiasm and drags here and there. However the story based on the Checkov's play is interesting and the characterization invoking the period is quite alright.
