Storyline

Nobody knows Auguste Maquet, and yet everybody knows "The Three Musketeers", Everybody knows Alexandre Dumas who wrote the swashbuckling masterpiece but who knows that Maquet is his co-writer? Nobody does, as his name does not appear on the cover. At least not Charlotte Desrives, the lovely daughter of a doctor stagnating in prison for his political opinions. When the lively girl mistakes the shy Maquet for the fiery ex-revolutionary Dumas, begging him to help her to have her father released, the former makes few efforts to put her right. She is so admiring of "him" ... She is so pretty ... Written by Guy Bellinger

I am one of few people who hate Alexandre Dumas - father. for many subjective reasons. and this film was real useful for me. for its art to discover, out of legend/statue, a man with his sins, errors, egocentrism, selfishness but, in same measure, with his virtues. it is a sort of trip in time. not only as fresco of a period but as the remind of emotions and fascination and reactions when, at early ages, has read his novels. old truths and Depardieu as the ideal actor for a role not so easy. because a part of his performance explores traits of his personality in so obvious way than Dumas becomes more than the author but source of reflection about yourself.
