Russian Musketeers
27 December 2014 | by See all my reviews

Russian film adaptation of the Dumas' classic Three Musketeers is not the best of Soviet cinema. It definitely shows why it falls short while building up the story in the first half an hour. Characters are cartoonish. Story is of typical and acting is stagey -typical to the Soviet comedies of the time-. There is no interesting camera work or editing. Not all the musical scores are topping the charts, some of them are off key and offering mismatching tones for the song.

Of course its important to analyze the film in the right context, namely neutralization of the cultures and censorship in Soviet era. Film takes Dumas' worldwide known story and easily adapts it to a Russian speaking apolitical(!) France. Unsurprisingly, this simple story and plain adaptation wins the hearts of the ex-Soviet nations. Hence its high rating.

Unfortunately there are not many good things to tell about Russian D'Artanyan. I'm not sure if i would recommend this film to people who are not interested in Dumas' works or Soviet cinema. So don't get hyped by the high rating, in the end its an overrated TV film.
