1977 Certificate: pg


Ridley Scott made his mark as a master visualist with this eye-catching feature debut following a long-running feud - more than two decades - between two French officers during the Napoleonic Wars. Harvey Keitel and Keith Carradine are the adversaries whose argument - based on an obscure disagreement - lasts for 20 years but never loses its edge. Unusual and captivating tragic-comedy.
