A second-class horror movie has to be shown at Cannes Film Festival, but, before each screening, the projectionist is killed by a mysterious fellow, with hammer and sickle, just as it happens in the film to be shown.
I saw this movie last night on TV: and I haven't laughed so much for a very long time.
The first hour or so, when the three Magi make their way to Paris, and then explore, had me in stitches. Their "old world" speech and actions in today' world lent itself to much humour. The high level of humour dropped off at the half way point and things became a bit darker, though still funny.
Yet I still greatly enjoyed the movie. Plenty to ponder, especially as Christmas becomes all the more material and commercial. The idea of a bit of magic in today's world, and something people can believe in, struck a chord with me.
