Philippe Noiret plays famed swordsman D'Artagnan alongside Sophie Marceau as the eponymous daughter, a deteremined Eloise, in this swashbuckling historical adventure. Eloise eschews her talents with the sword to concentrate on her studies at a convent, but trouble comes knocking in the form of a slave seeking refuge from the clutches of the evil Duke of Crassac. The Duke's soldiers retaliate by murdering the Mother Superior and his nefarious plot to destabalise the country becomes apparent. The feisty Eloise enlists the help of her father, the legendary musketeer D'Artagnan, to overthrow the dastardly Duke. Set in 1650s France, D'Artagnan's Daughter is an action packed tale of conspiracy, murder and revenge directed by the great Bertrand Tavernier and featuring a memorable performance by leading lady Marceau who famously performed her own swordfights.
