    I just watched the French movie “Queen to Play” (“Joueuse” in French), which I got on DVD from Netflix last night.

    I wrote a review of it on my chess blog

    You can watch the trailer on there as well. I think that most chess players would like the movie.

    Cheers,

    This is one of the games featured in the movie. The main character plays the 24th move. A real brilliancy!

    Beautiful actress. Delightful movie. I do love how she was clutching the queen in her lap during the tournament. I also enjoyed that it was a chess movie free from, "It's there, Josh! Just 12 moves deep! You can find it!"

    I'll look out for it. I wonder though.
    In the game quoted, TimmyBx correctly spots it is indeed
    the famous game Sveshnikov - Scherbakov. Russian Ch. 1991,

    Do they give the players a mention in the credits? I think they should.

    The same combo has of course been played on here.

    I've always thought that these movies would be so much better if I could see the games.

    Thanks for the game. Now I want to see the movie again.
