Gus (played by Guillaume Canet) suffers from narcolepsy. He falls asleep all the time and has dreams about supermen from comics (Van Damme would play one of these supermen, a short & secret appearance).
This is a great comedy !!! History is treaded but comedy is the Queen. Coluche wrote History with his own personal point of view and tell us the adventure of The White Horseman under the Reign of King Gros Pif Ier (As King Big Nose Ist)........ We find a lot of good french actors as Gerard Lanvin, Michel Blanc, Anemone, Coluche himself, Rolang Giraud, ... There are stupid but mirth-provoking gags every minute... Song of White Horseman is really good and Coluche's dialogues are really funny (see the scene of the attempt against the king, one of the best) One of the best french comedy of the 70's !!!!!!!!! Really.
