Blades Private Club
Suspecting Gustav Graves (Toby Stephens) of using his Icelandic diamond mine to cover up his handling of South African conflict diamonds, James Bond (Pierce Brosnan) decides to confront the billionaire himself.
He goes to the private club Blades to face the businessman in a fencing duel. The fight turns sour and very quickly, the stakes are getting higher.
Instead of the harmless foils, the two fighters quickly switch to saber, katana, and then sword, disturbing the calm of the club.
The fight ends in the small courtyard, where 007 manages to slightly wound his opponent in the torso.
In the main hall, the billionaire pays his debt, before James Bond is handed a mysterious key by the club’s concierge (Oliver Skeete).
The Blades are of course fictional, the scenes were shot at the very private Reform Club.
In Quantum of Solace, M (Judi Dench) is summoned by the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs (Tim Pigott-Smith) for a re-fit following the incidents caused by the secret agent (Daniel Craig).
Madonna is not credited in her role as Verity in the credits. Her performance was considered a cameo.
