Product Description

Philippe Noiret plays famed swordsman D'Artagnan alongside Sophie Marceau as the eponymous daughter, a deteremined Eloise, in this swashbuckling historical adventure. Eloise eschews her talents with the sword to concentrate on her studies at a convent, but trouble comes knocking in the form of a slave seeking refuge from the clutches of the evil Duke of Crassac. The Duke's soldiers retaliate by murdering the Mother Superior and his nefarious plot to destabalise the country becomes apparent. The feisty Eloise enlists the help of her father, the legendary musketeer D'Artagnan, to overthrow the dastardly Duke. Set in 1650s France, D'Artagnan's Daughter is an action packed tale of conspiracy, murder and revenge directed by the great Bertrand Tavernier and featuring a memorable performance by leading lady Marceau who famously performed her own swordfights.

Format:DVD
I spent a pleasant few hours watching La Fille D'Artagnan - I guess it would pass in France for a family film but the sex references (comparatively tame for a 15-cert), bad language and bawdy humour mean it doesn't have such a clear audience over here.

Sophie Marceau looks as gorgeous as ever in and out of men's breeches as headstrong and surprisingly modern feminist Eloise who turns up in Paris to make long-lost daddy D'Artagnan's day. The film really uses her as more of a plot device to get the Musketeers back together for the usual antics, and never takes itself too seriously, which only seems to give wings to what would otherwise be an interminable story about three old blokes gadding about on horseback pretending to be 23. The movie is worth a watch just for the quips: I don't think I've ever laughed quite so much while watching a sword fight.

Nevertheless, there's more than a dash of feminism mixed into the fun and it's nice to see a historical film where a number of women are at the centre of the plot and not just soft focus arm-candy at the sidelines.

This is another excellent French swashbuckler as only the French seem to be able to do them. It is a clever continuation of the Three Musketeers story done with humour and charm, and of course some impressive flashing of sword blades. Not an overblown blockbuster, but all the better for it in my opinion. At times thoughtful and touching, but never forgetting to entertain. All for one, and certainly one for me!

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best takes on Dumas' heroes 14 Oct 2011
Format:DVD
This film is a glorious romp of a movie. It is apparently a difficult task to film the Dumas characters. The 1993 version was dull and the 2011 version (It's the Musketeers with airships and flame throwers!!!) is frankly inexplicable. Only the 1973 Richard Lester version got it in any way right balancing fine character performances, good swasbuckling action and a lot of knowing comedy. All of these traits are to be found in Tavernier's D'Artagnan's daughter.

The cast led by Sophie Marceau are uniformly excellent. Paired with some of France's top actors Marceau does not merely hold her own but she carries vast chunks of the film and does some 90% of the stunts. The plot is a weird mix of Dumas action romance and French farce. In short after witnessing a murder at the convent where she grew up, Eloise D'Artagnan finds what appears to be a coded message that (she decides) threatens the young, arrogant and about to be crowned Louis XIV. She goes to find her famous father who has his own problems with the King. At the same time she inadvertently alerts the crafty but venal Cardinal Mazarin to a love poem, which he deduces to be evidence of the same treasonous plot. By sheer determination and charisma she persuades her father to reunite his friends and ride to the rescue one more time.

What comes across is the almost sad passage of time, the Musketeers are all at least twenty years past their prime and now get by more on skill and cunning. D'Artagnan has one scene over a grave where he bemoans what life has become. Noiret's D'Artagann retains the quick temper, guile and pride of the books along with an inability to be diplomatic.(Traits which Marceau mimics very well.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Pleasant Experience 23 Feb 2014
Format:DVD
This is an adventure film which is well made. The bad boys kill a nun and laugh when a young woman tries to stop them. They don’t know that the young woman is in fact D'Artagnan's daughter. She looks for her father and asks for help to avenge the nun and resolve a mystery.

In conclusion: a captivating film, recommended for a movie night.
