The Three Musketeers (De tre musketerer)
Animation
 
 
Alexandre Dumas's classic adventure story gets a fresh visual adaptation -- this time using stop-motion puppet animation -- in this interpretation from Latvian animators Janis Cimermanis and Dane Gert Fredholm. During the reign of Louis XIII, young but gifted swordsman named D'Artagnan leaves the small town of his birth to come to Paris and offer his services to the King's Musketeers. D'Artagnan initially finds himself at odds with three of his new colleagues, Porthos, Aramis and Athos, but a series of duels between them brings the four men together, and they become close friends and comrades. After a cache of valuable jewels goes missing, the Musketeers set out to find them, which leads them into unexpected intrigue with the Queen of France, a meeting with a beautiful maiden, and a startling discovery about the mysterious Cardinal Richelieu. De Tre Muskaterer (aka The Three Musketeers) was the first directorial assignment for veteran animators Cimermanis and Fredholm.~ Mark Deming, All Movie Guide Rated No Rating .
