Not a movie, actually, but a TV series... The BBC's The Musketeers...
Based on Alexander Dumas' novel The Three Musketeers, but aside from the names and perhaps a few background basics, I think that's where the similarities end--though in the interest of full disclosure--I have not read the book.
Anyway, it's a bit cheeky, though not in any way a comedy, and full of lovely men and women and sword fighting!
The series focuses on the core group of Musketeers Athos, Porthos, Aramis, and newbie D'Artagnan and their various missions and the bits of personal trouble each one of them gets themselves into.
Have you seen it? What do you think?
