Angélique 3: Death and diplomacy
10 January 2016 | by See all my reviews

A year after her second husband Philippe died in battle, king Louis (Jacques Toja) asks Angélique if she is available to go on a diplomatic mission for him: meet the ambassador of Persia, Bachtiary Bey (Sami Frey). Diplomacy is not exactly Angélique's field, but the king encourages her: "You are an impossible woman, but please stay as you are." The reward is the castle of her first husband, Count Peyrac, how could she refuse? The castle brings back old memories. The first meeting with Bachtiary Bey at a public execution, however, is not going well, because he is not used to listen to proud and determined women, but then there is an unexpected interruption...

Here we go again, the adventure continues, and the addition of exotic friends and enemies, including even a group of satanists at a black mass, keeps it interesting. Angélique seems more confident now, after she was only chased and victimized in the previous part. I voted 8/6/7/6/6 for the 5 movies of the series.
