Trivia

The project started when Warner agreed to leave the French TV channel Canal+ to use its 4000-movies catalog free of charge and rights for a month (except some of them, like Clint Eastwood's ones). The directors Michel Hazanavicius et Dominique Mézerette, who already did two short movies using the same way, enjoyed very much that decision and they picked their choice amongst the whole bunch of flicks. The whole job was done in six months. See more »

The best patchwork ever...
31 July 2002 | by (AiX en Provence, France) – See all my reviews

Take a bit of El Dorado, a bit of President's men, a part of Citizen Kane, (etc.), keep the usual dubbing French voice but create another story... Unique, hilarious, perfect
