The band of musketeers: D’Artagnan, Porthos Aramis and Athos, portrayed in a purely self-ironic and disenchanted key, in a series of adventures in order to save King Louis XIV.

Moschettieri Del Re is a sequel of sorts to Dumas’ second novel on the notorious Musketeers - Twenty Years After – and was inspired by some of the period drama greats which have set the standards for Italian-style comedy, including Mario Monicelli’s masterpiece, For Love and Gold, and the cult film Nothing Left to do but Cry by the Roberto Benigni - Massimo Troisi duo.


It doesn’t concern itself with replicating the farcical and sophisticated rereading of History offered by the former, nor the pure anarchist comedy of the latter, and the romanticism at the heart of Veronesi’s Moschettieri dissolves at times into a coarse and satirical form of comedy, which the veteran Tuscan director just can’t seem to get away from.

But audiences of all kinds will find themselves swept away in the fun that was so very clearly had by the excellent cast of Moschettieri del Re in the making of this film, and it even manages to strike the nostalgic chord sought by the director on the passing of time and the bonds of friendship.

2019 | IT | 110 min | Dir. Giovanni Veronesi | In Italian with English subtitles
