Il Maestro di Scherma - The Fencing Master - El Maestro de.

Benedict Weathersbee is content in his self-imposed exile. His fencing academy, with its WASP-ish clientele, provides an adequate income to satisfy his needs, if not his social station. It is enough to keep a man until Queen and Country should require his services again.

But Benedict is a man with a past – not all of it a cup of Earl Gray – and there are some who would see him dead for his sins, imagined or real. Which begs the question who is Benedict Weathersbee, really? A dispossessed British noble, with impeccable manners and a classic sense of style? Or a monster hiding behind a mask?

The Fencing Master (1988) is a historical novel by Arturo Pérez-Reverte set in Spain at the middle of the 19th century. Amid the political turmoil of the Glorious Revolution where conspiracy and intrigue are commonplace, fencing master Don Jaime Astarloa tries to live as he always has. Subsisting on meagre funds gained through teaching fencing to the sons of the nobility, the anachronistic Don Jaime lives by one universal code: "to be honest, or at least honorable--anything, indeed, that has its roots in the word honor."

Even much of the talk about Queen Isabel II had some basis in fact. Luis de Ayala and Minister Marfori are said to have had intimate relations with the Queen, which is wholly possible due to her alleged nymphomania .

A minister, later revealed to be Joaquin Vallespin Andreu, uncle of Luis de Ayala, meets with an apparently wealthy blackmailer. Shortly, money and an envelope full of "names and addresses" changes hands, and the scene ends with a reference to the historical time frame, 1866 during the reign of Queen Isabel.

The remake of a Akira Kurosawa script is based on the story of the actual figure Ichikawa Danpei who was a tateshi, or fencing instructor and choreographer, in Japan in the Taisho era at the beginning of the twentieth century. The sword fighting style of the man is less and less in demand as the years progress, tastes change and more realism is called for.
