Anton Chekhov's The Duel: Mini Mini Review

After hiking at Lake Laguinitas today, I went to see Anton Chekhov's The Duel. Yes, that's the correct name of the movie. It is based on an Anton Chekhov novella. I'd read Mick Lasalle's review in today's paper and that made me want to see it.

Here's my review: It was good but not great. Some of the writing was stilted. The acting was uneven in the three main actors. The cinematography was wonderful. The music was *exquisite*. (Unlike the music in Inception which was like a hammer to the head!)

If you want to read the review written by The San Francisco Chronicle's Mick Lasalle, go here.
