CAST: Leonardo Di Caprio (King Louis XIV / Philippe), Gabriel Byrne (D’Artagnan), John Malkovich (Athos), Gérard Depardieu (Porthos), Jeremy Irons (Aramis), Anne Parillaud (Queen Mother Anne), Judith Godrèche (Christine). 125’. 1,85. Finnish / Swedish subtitles by Outi Kainulainen / Ditte Kronström. DIST: UIP Finland. Viewed in Helsinki, VET, Friday 13 March 1998. *** Exciting story about the last adventure of the Musketeers. I haven’t seen the versions with Douglas Fairbanks or Louis Hayward. This one is a reliable entertainment product. Historically it does not feel true, not even as a fantasy.
