This really good adaptation of Alexandre Dumas' novel is one of the forgotten jewels of french TV. Not only is the political and religious situation of 16th century France very well rendered, but the actors (and particularly the beautiful Karin Petersen, and Denis Manuel as Henri the third, one of France's most intriguing kings) seem really in touch with their characters and make the love story and the political plots around the throne either easy to dive in. If you like the mix of swashbuckling, romance and great historical background (the religion wars), this one is for you, no doubt.
