Augustin , King of looney humour
4 July 2003 | by (Marseille France) – See all my reviews



A refreshing little comedy about a very kinky and colourful guy called Augustin who would be physically the hybrid clone of French politician François Fillon and Dr Frankestein 's monster. He yearns for being the next big thing in Kung Fu movies and moves into Parisian Chinatown for it. A very peppy cocktail of laughes and moving love scenes offered thanks to a gallery of good actors such like attractive Chinese actress Maggie Cheung and one of inimitable French comedian Darry Cowl starring Augustin 's ambiguously possessive friend. Too bad director Anne Fontaine does not make an Opus 3 of her character 's tribulations in China to complete this vivid trilogy.
