Frequently Bought Together
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.

Excellent film under any name.
Deciding that there must be more to this than meets the eye and believing it to be a plot against the crown, Eloise sets about going to Paris in an attempt to locate her father, the once famous musketeer, in the hope that he will give her the opportunity to warn the king and help her in saving the day.
Unfortunately though once she meets him she finds her work maybe cut out for her as it soon transpires he is a stubborn old so and so, who has fallen out with the king and who's dated opinions on young women make it difficult for him to come to terms with Eloise's desire for adventure.
Eventually though she convinces him enough to join her and together they go about reuniting the musketeers in an effort to stop the assassination of the king... That's if there is even to be an assassination..?
A beguiling and entertaining enough adventure, with some good swashbuckling that revives memories of Lester's superior musketeer film's from the 70s. The plotting is relatively unimportant, or seems that way, and the film loses itself with too much silly comedy that doesn't always work.
But having said that Marceau does a fine job in the lead and is supported by an engaging enough cast.
There are one or two brief moments of nudity (Marceau's bare chest) which are maybe uncharacteristically exploitative for the film but are at least pleasant on the eye.
The subtitles are pretty poor at times but stand out well against the background. The disc contains zero extras..
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.
Hilarious fun! So pleased I bought this. I thought it'd be good but I didn't expect it to be this good, nor did I expect to fall for one of the actors! Well acted throughout, and heaps of laughs, yet at the same time it retains all the excitement and drama of Dumas - just taken rather more farcically. The daughter is acted perfectly as a spirited young girl who isn't really suited to a convent but she hadn't realised it until a murder takes place there. Out for help and revenge, off she goes to find her famous father d'Artagnan, only to discover he's rather aged now for the kind of adventures he had in his youth. No matter, he's persuaded to try and so is Planchet - fat but still feisty. Unfortunately, it appears Athos is dead and d'Artagnan has a few sad thoughts by his grave, so finally it's onto Porthos, who is still eating immensely and there's a most amusing little cameo of him disputing with Planchet over the composition of the dish Planchet has prepared. Also along the way, our heroine has picked up a young poet and that leads to some more comical scenes.
There are many priceless moments but for me the best all concern my favourite musketeer, Aramis, who is played by gorgeous Sami Frey. I fell for him the moment he appeared on the screen, and am now a fan! He is the only one of our heroes who still has his black hair and glamour. We first encounter him - now a Bishop - in bed with a pretty young girl (no surprise there) although it's not romping, at least not when we arrive, but instead he is having a beauty treatment. Even with slices of cucumber (?) all over his face, he still looks utterly glamorous and when he gets out of bed he dresses utterly glamorous just as in the past.Read more ›

Dated, pedestrian, and silly film. Tries and fails to be humorous, tries and fails to be exciting, tries and fails to swaggering. Altogether missable.Published 10 months ago by GvKl
