When Julius Cesar fears, that he will probably never be able to defeat the gaulic village of Asterix and his friends, he has the idea of offering the Gauls a deal: if they are able to solve twelve tasks that he selected, he will hand over the Roman empire to them. If not, they have to submit. Written by
In contrast to the books Romans have no knowledge of the Gauls magic potion which brings them to the idea that the Gauls must be gods due to their super-human straight. The movie itself appears to be a different universe than the books since it contains more fantastic elements which the books avoided (most notably ghosts and gods) the style of the humor is much more absurd and unlike the books the plot doesn't stay true to the historical events.

I'm mostly a rather introvert person. When a comedy makes me smile it has succeeded, when it makes me chuckle it is a rousing success. The climax of this film made me fall from my cinema seat laughing.
This film is not based on any of the Asterix comic books as most of the Asterix films. Asterix faces 12 tasks, one more daunting than the other (I can't remember why, it was over 20 years ago), building up to the last one, the most difficult of the lot. Do not, under any circumstances, including hurricanes and invading Mongolic hordes, leave the cinema before that scene!
