Robert Lamoureux and his seventh company continue their comical antics with hilarious results !!!!
27 March 2015 | by (Paris,France) – See all my reviews

The three films of « La 7ème Compagnie" series are broadcast every summer in France much to the delight of numerous television viewers. They give a chance to old generation to marvel at their witty dialogues which allow newer interpretations. Keeping in mind the interests of new generations in learning more about French history, Gaumont studio has released these films on DVD. For "The Seventh Company Has Been Found", comic actor Henri Guybet replaces Italian star Aldo Maccione. He would also star in the last seventh company film "La 7ème Compagnie Au Clair De Lune" (The Seventh Company Outdoors). The comical antics of the seventh company continue unabated in the first half of the film with three French soldiers getting hold of a German tank. Although there is some slackening of pace in the beginning of second half, hilarity ensues at a frantic pace as an abandoned castle, where the French army is held, becomes the scene of utter disorder. Nobody is spared during times of war and comfort is the last thing on a soldier's mind during a war. One gets to see some major differences between officers and soldiers especially through a simple food menu : potatoes for army officers and watery soup for hapless soldiers. This doesn't deter French army at all as its soldiers are confident of escaping from the clutches of German army. It is funny to watch how French soldiers employ all their intellectual abilities with comical precision in order to free themselves from their German captors. Lastly, The seventh company series is a must watch for all admirers of comedies as it has been hailed for promoting the collective imagination of French society wherein involvement of German army on French soil is considered to be one of the most sordid chapter of its history.
