Immediately after the release of a new series from Netflix, an adaptation of the famous novel by Alexander Dumas, a scandal erupted: it turned out that in the scene of the fight between the musketeers of the king and the Cardinal guards near the Carmelite Monastery in the background you can see the characteristic silhouette of the Eiffel Tower, which was built only in late nineteenth century. Also, film fans considered in the film and other objects that did not exist at the time of the writer — the Moulin Rouge cabaret, the Lido cabaret and the Olympia concert hall.
Directed by John Tushtein rejected criticism, and called inconsistencies artistic assumption.
“We are making films for viewing in the 21st century. Therefore, recognizable places in Paris do not spoil, but complement the atmosphere, ”he said.
In addition, Tushtein had to solve other problems, in particular, the problem of political correctness.
“If in order to have a certain percentage of representatives of sexual minorities among the actors, there were no problems, then over the introduction of an African-American into the series had to seriously break his head. In the end, he was given the role of an executioner from Lille, which appears on the screen only in the scene of the execution of Milady with a hood on her head, completely covering her face. ”
