Storyline

The well-known little village from the Asterix and Obelix-comic books is in trouble: It is the last place not controlled by Rome. When Tax collector Claudius Incorruptus does not get his money from the villagers, Julius Caesar himself comes to the place to see what's so special about their resistance. A special magic potion, prepared by the village's druid, gives incredible power to those who drink it. And Obelix, who fell into the pot as a child has been invincible ever since. With the help of Tullius Destructivus, an intrigeur, the Romans try to get Obelix and the druid into their hands in order to wipe the little village off the map, when the last potion of it's stock has been used up. But each individual also has some plans of his own... Written by Julian Reischl <julianreischl@mac.com>

Trivia

In the pit-scene the extras had to scream and cheer like crazy. At first the crew couldn't get the people to be loud and wild enough. Then the director decided to split them up in two groups. Fans of adverse German soccer teams were put up against each other. It worked. The extras went berserk from then on. See more »

Hilarious
17 May 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I thought this production had the best of both worlds in capturing the spirit of the original comic strip as best as could be achieved by a movie, but adding the extra ingredients of three lovely comic performances from Clavier, Depardieu and Benigni. The plot is made up of several strands from different Asterix story lines, but holds together very well. I saw it originally dubbed in English, but prefer the original French, Clavier and Depardieu dubbed just doesn't work for me! Suitable for all ages, my six year old daughter loves it, although one or two scenes might be a bit scary, particularly if you don't like spiders!
