Preview by Jack Foley
SECOND Sight is delighted to announce the release of Bertrand Tavernier’s thrilling historical adventure D’Artagnan’s Daughter for the first time ever on UK DVD.
Philippe Noiret plays famed swordsman D’Artagnan alongside Sophie Marceau as the eponymous daughter, a determined Eloise, in this action-packed, swash-buckling tale.
Set in 1650s France, D’Artagnan’s Daughter sees leading lady Marceau doing all her own sword-fights and will be released on DVD on October 4, 2010.
Eloise eschews her talents with the sword to concentrate on her studies at a convent, but trouble comes knocking in the form of a slave seeking refuge from the clutches of the evil Duke Of Crassac (Claude Rich).
The Duke’s soldiers retaliate by murdering the Mother Superior (Pascale Roberts) and his nefarious plot to destabilise the country becomes apparent. The feisty Eloise enlists of the help of her father the legendary musketeer D’Artagnan to overthrow the dastardly Duke.
D’Artagnan’s Daughter – aka Revenge of the Musketeers – is an exciting tale of conspiracy, murder and revenge.
