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?

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.

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.
