Alexandre Dumas's novel The Vicomte of Braggelone, on which this film is based, has also been filmed as The Fifth Musketeer (1979). which featured José Ferrer, who preceded Gérard Depardieu as Cyrano de Bergerac (1950).
D'Artagnan, I am not angry with you. I knew you would lead me to them, and so you have. Lay down your sword and I will not punish you. I will let you retire in peace, and I will give your friends a swift execution, if you surrender NOW!
At the beginning of the movie, we clearly see King Louis XIV inside and outside of the castle Vaux Le Vicomte. Louis XIV never lived in this castle, as it belonged to Nicolas Fouquet. Vaux Le Vicomte became a source of inspiration for the Versailles castle. Versailles was the living place of Louis XIV when he was old and is shown in the movie. Therefore, all castle sets are wrong, since the young Louis XIV lived mostly in the Louvre/Tuileries palace, in the center of Paris, not shown in the movie.
