Originally, this film was going to be directed by Riccardo Freda, a director Tavernier is most keen on. However, due to discrepancies with protagonist actress Sophie Marceau, it was carried through by Tavernier himself. A cloak and dagger film in the purest adventure film style, La fille de D·Artagnan is a toy of intrigue, duels, romantic love, worn out heroes and forward young ladies. A pleasure.
