„A triumph for chess lovers everywhere!“ Tina Bidari, Las Vegas - USA
Karl Ernst Adolf Anderssen (1818 - 1879) was a famous classical chess master from Germany and is world famous for his brilliant play even today. In 1851 he received an invitation to be the standard-bearer for German chess at the world`s first international chess tournament in London. At that tournament, Anderssen defeated József Szén , Staunton, Marmaduke Wyvill and Lionel Kieseritzky, winning the tournament to everyone`s surprise. Anderssen is
celebrated particularly for two of his casual chess games in which he was
victorious through combinations involving heavy sacrifice of the pieces.

„An immortal little movie!“ Kevin Weiming Goh, Singapore
Lionel Adalbert Bagration Felix Kieseritzky (1806 - 1853) was a mathematics teacher like Anderssen. Kieseritzky lived in Paris as a chess professional, giving lessons or playing games for five francs an hour, and editing a chess magazine. In 1851 he surpassed Phillidor`s record by playing and winning four blindfold games
simultaneously. Kieseritzky`s combinations were outstanding, and a variant of King`s gambit was given his name. He was one of the finest players of the so-called “romantic epoch“ in chess.

„Blood chilling thriller!!!“ Marko Honkanen, Helsinki - Finland
The Immortal Game was an informal match played between these two great players at the
Simpson`s-in-the-Strand Divan in London. Despite losing, it was in fact Kieseritzky who recorded and published the game during his period as editor of “La Regence“.

„It is beautiful, in a poetry way.“ Terrence L. Foster, East Hartford - USA
The Immortal Game - The Movie takes us back to the times when wild, romantic inspirations dominated the boards. The game is an excellent demonstration of the earlier style, when rapid development and attack seemed to be the most successful way to win, when gambits and counter-gambits were offered and not accepting them was considered ungentlemanly-like.
