What is the film all about?
The setting of The Last Duel is in France during the 14th century. The story revolves around two best friends, Jacques Le Gris and Jean de Carrouges, who happen to a rift between them. The reason for this fight is when Gris has a severe accusation of raping the wife of Carrouges, Marguerite.
The issue is taken to the King of France at that time, Charles VI. The King gives his decision in favor of Jacques Le Gris because he is not found guilty. No one is ready to believe what Marguerite says, but Jean de Carrouges appeals to the King. His appeal is of having a duel with Le Gris until one of them dies. There is also a challenge to the fight that if Carrouges dies, his wife must burn herself to death alive. This act will be a punishment for the false accusations she is putting on Le Gris.
