A star-studded adaptation of Alexandre Dumas’ classic novel. Dumas’ book has had countless adaptations, but now it’s time for French cinema to reclaim one of its best and enduring stories in this fast-paced and hugely engaging interpretation. The setting is France, 1627. D’Artagnan (François Civil, Call My Agent!), a young nobleman, rides to Paris in the hope of joining the musketeers, a group of soldiers loyal to the king. D’Artagnan finds himself involved in a violent scuffle and is left for dead. His attackers, led by a mysterious young woman (Eva Green), have been hired by the duplicitous Cardinal de Richelieu (Eric Ruf) to help bring down the king and his queen (Vicky Krieps, Phantom Thread). After recovering from his ordeal and finally making it to the court of King Louis XIII (a magnificent Louis Garrel). Martin Bourboulon delivers one of the best adaptations of Dumas’s work yet. He employs just the right amount of humour and attention to detail to create a truly exhilarating romp full of exciting twists and intricate fight scenes, which is delightful from start to finish.—The Jewish Chronicle
