Trivia

Producer and actress Mylène Demongeot approached her Fantomas series partner Louis de Funès to complete the cast of the film but couldn't get him to accept because, considering himself as a more visual comedian, he felt he wouldn't fit with the humor of a script strongly based on puns. See more »

A must see
20 June 2003 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

This is one of my top 5 films of all time. The best actors of a generation are in this completely 'loufoque' movie. This is a movie where you don't have to think - just enjoy the silliness of it.
