To put it simple, from my point of view this is the best A.Duma's / 3 Musketeers adaptation on screen ever, of course if you like musical.
This movie seamlessly blends the action and adventure of historical movies, with great spirit of classic 'D'Artagnan's ' tale and great, great taste of music and songs which blend in.
You get a movie with unexpectedly fresh and charming characters, lots of fun and humor and great songs.
This is one of the best movies of the Russian 'Soviet' era.
Of course a non-Russian speaking person (even with subtitles) would be hard to get a full at this movie, but the only with I have is that somebody actually do release this on DVD with English dubbing and subtitles.
People who love music movies and movies like ORIGINAL CHARLIE AND CHOC FACTORY etc - most probably be able to enjoy it....
Really a cult classic.
