Movie: The Chess Player

<p><a href=”″>THE CHESS PLAYER – Trailer with English subtitles</a> from <a href=”″>Latido Films</a> on <a href=””>Vimeo</a&gt;.</p>

Well,  I can’t embed it so you’ll just have to follow the link to the trailer. I saw this as part of the Spanish Film Festival, in amongst what seemed to be a whole lot of comedies that did not attract me in the least.  I enjoyed it, but it felt a bit like ‘Dr Zhivago’ meets ‘The Count of Monte Cristo’ . It seemed rather dated in its narrative, as if it had stepped out of the 1970s, but it was beautifully filmed.

I was able to follow the Spanish relatively well, but thank God for subtitles!
