Description

Honoring Keith Carradine two of his favorite films The Duelists (3:00 pm) and The Moderns (5:15pm) screen at the Kenwood Restaurant venue Thursday September 18.

Set during the grand, sweeping Napoleonic age, an officer in the French army insults another officer and sets off a life-long enmity. The two officers, D’Hubert and Feraud, cross swords time and time again in an attempt to achieve justice and preserve their honor.

Narrator: The duellist demands satisfaction. Honour, for him, is an appetite. This story is about an eccentric kind of hunger. It is a true story and begins in the year that Napoleon Bonaparte became ruler of France.

Armand D’Hubert: You have kept me at your beck and call for fifteen years. I shall never again do what you demand of me. By every rule of single combat, from this moment your life belongs to me. Is that not correct? Then I shall simply declare you dead. In all of your dealings with me, you’ll do me the courtesy to conduct yourself as a dead man. I have submitted to your notions of honor long enough. You will now submit to mine.
