D’Artagnan, the blazing hero out of Alexandre Dumas’ iconic romantic historical drama, “The Three Musketeers,” and his world-renowned motto, “All for one and one for all,” is widely known. Not as widely known is that, behind this adventurous hero from late 19th-century popular literature, hides a real-life character: Charles de Batz de Castelmore. As a tribute to Dumas—who died 150 years ago—this film confronts fiction and history by revealing the prolific life of this impetuous Gascon, whose adventures inspired the legend of cloak and sword.
