The best Charlots movie !!!
14 August 2006 | by (France) – See all my reviews

A very inspired Claude Zidi made this movie back in 1973... A 70's feeling in the Paris suburbs, tons of gags, a reflection about consumerism and four awkward guys who are out to proof that they got nothing to proof, "Le Grand Bazar" is a masterpiece of the genre. I got to watch it about 200 times at least with my young brother, and never got enough of it, because this is so funny, because it shows a nice picture of France during the early 70's, and because of the awesome performances of some of the most talented actors within the comedy genre at the time; Michel Galabru as a frustrated bartender, Jacques Seiler as dumb security guy, and of course the four Charlots as a young and naive crew trying to do what they can do to keep what they took for granted for so many years... An awesome movie, the Charlots at their BEST !!!!
