In this action comedy the French boxer Jo Cavalier is charmed on the train to Berlin for the Olympics in Hitler's Germany by the little boy Simon Rosenblum who asks his autograph; when it turns out his adorable young fan is a Jewish orphan in danger of persecution, he risks his one shot at Olympic glory to save Simon and his family, helped only by a German officer-gentleman who became his friend in World War I, by an adventurous escape to Switzerland, Nazi troops on their heals and braving impossible odds in roller coaster-style.

Because of its huge advertising campaign on bill boards and in metro stations 25 French critics called moviegoers to boycott L'AS DES AS. They argued that Belmondo would displace smaller, more important movies like Jacques Demy's UNE CHAMBRE EN VILLE. Belmondo answered in newspapers with the words of Jean Cocteau: "Critics like to blame those who hold their head a little bit higher than the others." And Belmondo added that he does movies only for audiences not for critics. A year later he said in an interview: "Critics say that my movies won't last. Who cares? I live now." See more »

This must me my Belmondo's all time favorite. Off course do not take it to serious, think it is historically correct or make the mistake to think it is realistic. Step into this movie with an open mind and you get rewarded because this is AN ALL TIME FAMILY COMEDY CLASSIC.
An absolute magnificent combination of gags, jokes and fun during the Olympic Games in Berlin late 1930's. You can watch this one multiple times and it just gets better and better. Fantastic, an ultimate Comedy Movie. The part at Hitler's castle just doesn't get better than this. Outrageous.
See it, Feel It and Enjoy it like I have done so many times. A winner!!!
