Here at the frontier, the leaves fall like rain. Although my neighbors are all barbarians, there are still two cups at my table.


Ten thousand flowers in spring, the moon in autumn, a cool breeze in summer, snow in winter. If your mind isn't clouded by unnecessary things, this is the best season of your life.

The Most Realistic Sword Duel in Movie History


No, it's not Ignio Montoya and the Dread Pirate Robert in The Princess Bride. It's a saber duel from the Polish film, The Deluge.

Hi Rick,

I haven't come by for awhile, but glad to see you still posting.

I enjoyed this video commentary and the fight clips within. The full-on vigor and strength, besides the technical aspects, of the participants is often not shown so well in movies.

Wish you and yours all the best in the New Year.

Regards

The same to you. Mike!
