Sickened to see his students always sleeping in class, a teacher with a colleague and an anarchist start a war against the television. They climbed on Paris roofs to coat the T.V. antennas ... See full summary »
A wanted gangster is both king and prisoner of the Casbah. He is protected from arrest by his friends, but is torn by his desire for freedom outside. A visiting Parisian beauty may just tempt his fate.
Another typical Mocky movie, satyric at the most and that, for this very reason had many problems during its release. But some years later it was best accepted by the audiences. In UK, it curiously was well received. Mocky gives us much fun concerning VIPs in the cow milk industry, all the politicians involved in that mess taking place in Normandy. OK it's pretty funny, but I have much trouble to laugh. That doesn't mean it's not worth, but I am tired of Mocky. I only promised to myself to watch the most of his movies, as far as they are available in DVD or airing. The first scenes were tremendous, but after I dropped the whole thing. Anyway, it's worth for Mocky's fans. He's really an offbeat director. There were not so many of them.
