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 »

Better than I thought
11 April 1999 | by (Frankfurt) – See all my reviews

Before I went to see it I had some open items about this movie:

  • How would the actors fulfill the roles of the cartoon
characters?
  • To which book(s) will the movie refer?
And the really most important question:
  • How the hell are they going to animate the flying Romans?


To answer the last question: The special effects are really brilliant, every Asterix-fan will be delighted by the ways how the Romans leave ground. As well I really fell in love with the village.

Some actors are really good. Most of all Roberto Benigni as the evil Destructivus is gorgeous. As well, I was positively surprised by Depardieu as Obelix. But Asterix is not as witty and humorous as in the books, Miracolix (alias Panoramix or Getafix) the druid is not the relaxed old wise.

The plot is new but has a lot of motives from the books. The real Asterix-fan will have noticed (I only know the German titles): Der Seher, der Kupferkessel, der Gallier, die Goten, als Legionaer, and there are surely more.

All in all I really much enjoyed the movie although I was really skeptic about it before. And I missed the pirates.
