period: The Three Musketeers

The Three Musketeers

The hot-headed young D'Artagnan along with three former legendary but now down on their luck Musketeers unite and defeat a dastardly plot by Carinel Richelieu & Milady de Winter involving Leonardo da Vinci’s airship designs.

As part of the plot Milady steals a necklace belonging to Queen Anne (Juno Temple) in an attempt to convince the King that she is having an affair with the Duke of Buckingham.

After more than twenty movie adaptations (not to mention the TV versions) of the Dumas novel it must be hard to come up with a new angle, but airships! And it still manages to be ‘deeply derivative… displaying not a smidgen of imagination or originality’ (E-Film Blog).

The makeup

Christina Smith & Björn Rehbein were the makeup designers.
