Based on Arturo Pérez-Reverte's best-selling novels, Alatriste is a sweeping 17th-century epic teeming with swordplay, lust and political intrigue. After his company falls prey to a deadly ambush, Captain Alatriste (Viggo Mortensen) returns to Spain to fulfill the dying wish of a fallen friend: to care for his son, Íñigo. But the once-mighty empire has started to crumble under the weight of corruption. With Íñigo under his wing, Alatriste must fight to protect his honour amidst the decay of his cherished homeland.
