a lacklustre comeback from "the Inconnus" but an entertaining comedy
17 February 2004 | by See all my reviews

In the French movie "the three brothers" (1995), one of the characters says to the three members of the Inconnus: "Eh!... Hurry up the Three Kings or it will cool down!" It is to believe that this cue firmly fixed in their minds and gave them the idea to shot a movie.

"The Three Kings" constitutes the Inconnus' first collective opus since "the three brothers" ("le pari" (1997) and "l'extra-terrestre" (2000) were made by two of them) and because it is a comedy, they went straight to the point to make their public laugh. Indeed and very simply, the comic emanates from the dialogs. Besides, either it is a movie or a sketch, dialogs made the Inconnus' success. Here, comical effects are created by the gap between the noble and archaic dialogs pronounced by the Three Kings and people's incredulous reactions who meet them and who of course consider them as fools.

As a result, this comical device is easy but rather efficient and I would add monotonous. Indeed, this is nearly the sole one used during the whole movie and it makes it a little monotonous. There aren't many gags. Furthermore, by watching this zany story, it is difficult not to think about "the visitors" (1993), the famous French film.

Then, the story remains obscure on certain points, among this one: how do the Three Kings manage to travel through the time? A rational explanation would have been apposite.

"the Three Kings" remains a funny comedy in spite of its faults. The Inconnus' fans should find something in it.
