Storyline

Based on a true story set around turn-of-the-century France, it follows the lives of two men: Joseph Pujol and Dr. Marcel Baudouin. Pujol was an entertainer at the Moulin Rouge who was gifted with a unique backside, which could take in and release air in measured increments thus producing amazing and humorous noises. Dr. Baudouin was obsessed with Joseph's "instrument" and pursued him doggedly for many years, ultimately resulting in his undoing. Written by Steve Ochs

Mon Dieux - C'est formidable!!!
14 December 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I enjoyed this film like nobody's business and laughed till it hurt - a sound script with authentic hilarity. The script was so well written and came to life with bold strikes and tender subtleties. The love story is a major triumph but getting this guys acts together was a real adventure and the director made it a whole lot of fun. The cast is something to write home about. The casting of this film could not have been better. They were curious characters with a lot of depth. The story plays against a rich, vibrant background - the sets are lush without a detail missed. I could smell the croissants in the air!! - and quite possibly more. It's a diamond with polish!
