Muzafar and Feruz are two good-hearted shepherds from Taboulistan... a tiny country in Central Asia that no one has ever heard of. In order to bring his country into the international limelight, the son of the Tabouli president decides to try terror "advertising" and entrusts the two shepherds, more naive than evil, with the mission of a lifetime: destroying the Eiffel Tower! To meet their objective, they have to move through the most hostile territory imaginable: France! A France far different from the West they had heard described: Corsican nationalists, over-zealous policemen, dishonest taxi drivers, violent sports fans, crabby employees, unfriendly waiters, Kafkaesque administrations and medical malpractice... they are spared nothing. Luckily they meet Marianne, a young and pretty reporter who mistakes them for illegal aliens and helps shows them another face of France... a hospitable, magnificent and generous land where the living is easy. Vive la France! Written by
If you want a sophisticated comedy, you are in the wrong place. Just as the french are in the wrong place, if you wanted France to be a beautiful country ... I'm just kidding of course and referring to something that the movie is trying to "tell" you! But if you are looking for a hidden message or a political agenda, you shouldn't bother. The movie just has fun with a lot of clichés.
Some of them might not be too far away from the truth (it's like saying Germans enjoy beer and so forth ... obviously not every German is drinking beer, but the general view is there, so it's considered a fact, you can turn it around another way if you wanted) or as close to clichés as possible to make fun of them. This movie is making fun of everybody, but is also trying to be as lovely as possible. It still doesn't hold back and has some surprises along the way ... especially towards the end.
