Faithful French TV adaptation of the Dumas classic!

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

This movie is available through several video companies in France including the French Ebay. The costumes and sets are good. Performances are good even those who were miscast in the parts particularly two of the main characters Porthos and Aramis. Jean Paul Belmondo was a wonderful D'Artagnan reminiscent of Gene Kelly's performance. He looked like he had a good time with role of D'Artagnan. The film follows book closely not perfectly though.A great thing that could be said for this film is that it didn't cut or streamline any of the characters from the novel. In my humble opinion this version was a little more faithful to the novel than the Borderie two part film with Gerard Barray and Mylene Demongeot made two years later. I enjoyed this TV movie a lot more than I did D'Artagnan et Les Trois Mousquetaires (2005) with Emmanuelle Beart and Vincent Elbaz. As far as TV adaptations of the Three Musketeers nothing beats the 1969 French film D'Artagnan and the 1966 BBC miniseries with Jeremy Brett and Mary Peach. For anyone who doesn't wish to buy this adaptation or order from overseas. You can view a small clip on YouTube just put in Les Trois Mousquetaires or Jean Paul Belmondo or Belmondou.
