This all-star French adaptation is the best take on the Dumas classic in 50 years - and maybe ever.
One for all! Pure escapism is not to be sniffed at and D’Artagnan is a hit, a palpable hit.
A triumph. Glorious settings and a sense of grandeur make this latest adaptation of the Dumas classic a must-see. The ending is a cliffhanger... If you want to feel excited about a sequel for the first time in a while, here is your chance.
Thrilling. Energetically proves that you can ruffle the feathers of a totemic tale and still capture what’s good, galloping fun in Dumas’ storytelling: nefarious plots to be untangled, villains to be exposed and principled heroes to shoulder the risk of certain death while they tease each other mercilessly with heaps of panache. It’s pleasurable being reminded, too, that the women were hardly sidelined in these stories. Count me as “one for all” of it!

OPENING NIGHT SELECTION - 2024 FRENCH FILM FESTIVAL AOTEAROA

Alexandre Dumas’s thrilling and beloved classic novel The Three Musketeers has spawned multiple adaptations since its publication in 1844, but none have approached the scope and spectacle of this wildly entertaining, blockbuster two-film production from director Martin Bourboulon, who assembles an all-star cast for the first French cinematic treatment in over 30 years.

Set in the early 17th century kingdom of France, the opening instalment D’ARTAGNAN follows a spirited young swordsman, Charles D’Artagnan (François Civil), on his journey from Gascony to Paris to join the King’s elite Musketeers of the Guard. Along the way, he narrowly escapes death whilst heroically saving a woman from being kidnapped. In his efforts to enlist, D’Artagnan manages to offend the sensibilities of three of the most formidable Musketeers in the ranks, Athos (Vincent Cassel), Porthos (Pio Marmaï) and Aramis (Romain Duris)…

But D'Artagnan soon wins them over, and his dedication to help his newfound friends and serve King Louis XIII (Louis Garrel) will lead him not only into the path of the mysterious Milady de Winter (Eva Green) and the Queen's consort Constance (Lyna Khoudri), but the heart of a conspiracy where the future of the nation itself is at stake…

France’s biggest box-office success of 2023, Bourboulon’s magnificent production - lavishly produced with a budget of over €70 million - is both respectful of its source but enriched with contemporary touches; the film is chock-full of humour, romance, palace intrigue and pulse-pounding action. 

THE THREE MUSKETEERS: D’ARTAGNAN unquestionably delivers as a smart and hugely-involving big-screen experience for all ages. Audiences are assured of lining up for the thrilling conclusion, MILADY, within moments of the end credits.
