MOVIE: THE MAN IN THE IRON MASK

GEM, 8.30pm

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - TV -

IT IS France in the olden days and a quar­tet of ag­ing mus­ke­teers ( Ger­ard Depar­dieu, Jeremy Irons, Gabriel Byrne and John Malkovich) have had it up to here with the wicked ways of King Louis XIV ( Leonardo DiCaprio). So be­gins a plot to bust the king’s im­pris­oned twin brother Philippe ( DiCaprio again) out of jail and on to the throne. Very much a shop­ping- cen­tre panto given a big­bud­get movie makeover but some throt­tling good fun if you don’t take it too se­ri­ously.
