fight-choreography analysis

Skallagrim has an interesting vid analyzing the fight choreography of what he considers one of the most impressively realistic sword fights ever put on the silver screen: the fight from 1974's "The Deluge." I came away disagreeing, a bit, with Skall's analysis: where Skall saw naturalism, I saw instances where the moves were obviously choreographed, much in the manner of some of Yuen Wo Ping's repetitive choreography in some of his wuxia films. Still, I'd agree it was a well-done fight.
