Storyline

Ste-Marguerite citadel, France's most isolated island prison, holds a mysterious captive, whose iron-masked face nobody may see on pain of death. Cardinal Mazarin, who rules France in the name of immature king Louis XIV, needs to marry him off to a Spanish infante to seal a peace treaty, but finds him dangerously flirtatious and diagnosed terminally ill. He sends the unstoppable musketeer Charles d'Artagnan and his three buddies to secretly bring the captive, in his mask. The prison governor's daughter is secretly in love with him and arranges an escape just when the musketeers arrive. Written by KGF Vissers

A listless version.
21 June 2006 | by See all my reviews

A well-known Dumas tale;the best swashbuckler actorFrance ever had:Jean Marais;a French beauty ,Claudine Auger,who was to be Domino in "Thunderball";and Henry Decoin ,a skillful craftsman.

But it's not enough,cause the story lacks intensity ,and ,whereas you expect an action-packed movie,all you get is a slow-moving tale which hesitates between comedy and true adventure.Some people will not agree,but the made-for-TV version starring Irons,Di Caprio and Byrne is much more exciting.So is the French own made-for-TV one,the fourth segment of the "D'Artagnan" miniseries in 1969.

Jean-François Poron,who was the Duke of Nemours in "la Princesse de Clèves" where he played opposite Jean Marais too,is the "twins" here.
