Antoune Culo had already done it... as a child !!!
A magnificent movie, a pure «naughty» delight -- short in minutes but oh so very long on talent ! What is that mysterious «word of Cambronne» that many have heard, that many have uttered and yet that too many don't «dare» utter, specially in «good» company...? All the witty dialogs are in rhyming verses ! And, if you look closely, Antoune Culo, the famous-to-be «fartoman» Abatonos Kharah, can be briefly seen, as a very small child, sitting on a little «throne with a hole in its middle» (which is a kind of oblique hint to the «mystery» found in this unusually charming film). A must see, particularly if you master the French language well. And even if you don't, the translation is quite good. Don't miss this little jewel !
