Why watch this film?

The French story of The Three Musketeers, written by Alexandre Dumas, is one of the oldest and most retold in recent decades on film, television, and even in literary reinterpretations. The Three Musketeers: D'Artagnan is a great French production that seeks to tell this story again, but with rarely seen precision: director Martin Bourboulon (Eiffel), from the script by Matthieu Delaporte and Alexandre de La Patellière (both from Lo mejor está por venir), brings all the possible details from the novel. It's no surprise that the promise is that another movie will come, this time focused on the character of Milady (Eva Green). This ends up being a double-edged sword: on the one hand, the movie must be enjoyable for those who already know the story and remember even details from Dumas's writing, seeing on screen characters that, for decades, have gone through various interpretations, from Gene Kelly to Logan Lerman. Here, the essence has been preserved. But, on the other hand, The Three Musketeers: D'Artagnan is also too hard to follow. By putting on screen the essence of a book, even taking out small details, there are still many stories and characters, and it is difficult to follow all the subplots and what everyone involved wants. At least, it's still Dumas: a historical adventure with good moments and that, at the very least, is guaranteed fun at the movies.



Our suggestions

D'Artagnan, a spirited young Gascon, is left for dead after trying to save a young woman from being kidnapped. When he arrives in Paris, he tries by all means to find his attackers. He is unaware that his quest will lead him to the heart of a real war where the future of France is at stake. Allied with Athos, Porthos and Aramis, three musketeers of the King with a dangerous temerity, D'Artagnan faces the dark machinations of the Cardinal of Richelieu. But it is when he falls madly in love with Constance Bonacieux, the Queen's confidante, that d'Artagnan truly puts himself in danger. For it is this passion that leads him into the wake of the one who becomes his mortal enemy: Milady de Winter.
