PG-13 | | Action, Adventure, Drama
The cruel King Louis XIV of France has a secret twin brother who he keeps imprisoned. Can the twin be substituted for the real king?
The character D'Artagnan also appears in the play Cyrano de Bergerac (1990), which has also been filmed with Gérard Depardieu.
King Louis XIV:
I may be a young king, but I am king!
D'Artagnan: Then be a good king.
When the King asks Aramis to find and kill the Jesuit leader, a shot from the King's side looking at Aramis is followed by a shot from Aramis' side in which the King still looks straight ahead and only then turns his head towards Aramis.
When Philippe is in prison and Aramis comes disguised as a hugely fat friar to hear his confession and offer mass, Philippe kneels down and makes the sign of the cross. When the movie was released on VHS, Philippe's making the sign of the cross was left out.
