Musketeers Twenty Years After (Russian: Мушкетёры двадцать лет спустя, translit. Mushketeri dvadsat' let spustya) is a four-episode Russian musical film directed by Georgi Yungvald-Khilkevich based on Alexandre Dumas' 1845 novel Twenty Years After.

Filming began in the summer of 1990 and took place in Tallinn, Leningrad and Odessa.[2] In August 1991, the main songs of the film, that were performed by Igor Nadzhiev, were recorded.[3] In 1992, editing and dubbing of the movie were completed. And in January 1993, the premiere took place on the Channel One Russia of Ostankino.

The previous film was D'Artagnan and Three Musketeers. The next movie — The Secret of Queen Anne or Musketeers Thirty Years After.


Cardinal Mazarin demands from Anne of Austria to reveal to him the names of four friends who once helped her in the confrontation against Cardinal Richelieu.

The Queen reveals the name of D'Artagnan, lieutenant of the royal musketeers.

The cardinal calls the musketeer and orders him to find Athos, Porthos and Aramis in order to recruit them. However, only Porthos, who became a wealthy landowner du Vallon, agrees to join D'Artagnan. Athos and Aramis are on the side of the Fronde, hostile to the cardinal and led by the Duke of Beaufort, imprisoned in the Château de Vincennes.

The convergence of old friends, separated by political intrigues, occurs when Mordaunt, the son of Lady Winter, decides to take revenge on the Musketeers for the death of his mother.

Four friends get involved with him, as well as with Mr. de Jussac, their old enemy, who joined Mordaunt, in the fight.
