Fancy guys

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.
