Terrorists are making genetic experiments on kidnapped girls. Professor Larson, dreams of creating a master race to rule the world. Scientific organizations in Asia and Europe hire a group of mercenaries who are tasked to kill them.
When I first saw this movie in the 80's I loved it because it's a rare piece that illustrates the barbaric middle ages of Europe in a realistic manner. At first glance, it may seem crude to some with its nudity and humour, but this first impression dissipates with the consistent touch of silliness (Coluche style) that keeps you smiling. The ignorant, libertine and vulgar lifestyle of that period, intermixing with the influence of catholicism, are well delivered by Coluche and Serrault who make a wonderful team in this comedy. The mood of the movie is quite relaxed, it's as if the actors were having fun making the film. The dubbing might be annoying sometimes (franco-italian movies were common in the 80's) but it's only a minor issue that one can become used to. And finally, the music is quite amusing; the theme song is light and stays in memory for a long time :)
