Reared in a convent, Eloise D'Artagnan (Sophie Marceau) yearns to join the rough-and-tumble world of her illustrious father, D'Artagnan (Philippe Noiret). Cloistered from court intrigue, the young woman doesn't realize her pere has fallen out of favor with 16-year-old Louis XlV (Stephane Legros) and his advisor Cardinal Mazzarin (Luigi Proietti). Political realities intrude on Eloise's cloistered life when a slave seeks asylum at the convent. In the course of recapturing their runaway property, ambitious Duke de Crossac (Claude Rich) and his paramour Eglantine de Rochefort (Charlotte Kady) slay the Mother Superior. Attired in men's garb, Eloise travels to enlist her retired father's help in foiling the Duke's plot to usurp the throne. Can D'Artagnan reunite his three rusty cronies and cut through the Duke's well-organized scheme to bump off the King and Mazzarin during a religious ceremony at the Chaizeille Cloisters? A swashbuckler from the acclaimed director of art-house classics like THE CLOCKMAKER and LIFE AND NOTHING BUT? Surely, that's enough to warm the hearts of cinephiles everywhere. Although it's handsomely mounted and pleasantly tongue-in-cheek, watching this breezy costume romp is akin to accompanying a serious thinker on a trip to the beach, only to read trashy novels. Despite its longeurs and abundance of giggly French slapstick, this buoyant film is a must-see for Musketeer completists and Tavernier fans alike.
