Storyline

While restoring an old painting showing a woman and two men playing chess, Julia discovers the text "Who killed the knight" underneath the paint. The owner of the painting tells her that one of his forefathers was killed, the painting might identify the murderer. When Julia's friend is killed she understands that there is more to it. She consults Domenec, a chess genius who reconstructs the game from the painting. With any piece he takes, somebody dies. Written by Radboud Bruinsma <Radboud_Bruinsma@hg.maus.de>

I enjoyed this film. I've seen it perhaps a dozen times. Ms. Beckinsale is breathtaking. She receives strong support from the other players.
