Storyline

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 Anonymous

Freedom of fun (rental)
24 May 2015 | by (PariS) – See all my reviews

Nowadays, we live in a paranoiac, oppressive world where contest, difference are either crimes or pretext to crush civil liberties. So it's very courageous from Mickael to do a comedy about oriental terrorists ! Actually at my knowledge, it's the only movie in the world with that thematic !

It's also a movie about France and his view is true : we are not a country but a collection of tribes speaking the same language. It's a bit an update of the « 3 Freres » because we can see the evolution of the country in 15 years : more cultural, more violent and as much rustic and intolerant…

In this background, Mickael delivers a great, funny movie. His girlfriend stays the same beauty and talented actress and for one time, Garcia is likable ! As usual, for the few true creative spirits, people tackles Mickael ! It's only his second movie, he does everything (writing, directing, casting, acting) and nobody likes it whereas he is the only one to make me laugh so often and so long ! It's true that he bites everything, everyone so i suppose that he can be bitten also ! In all cases, since « Morning live », he has my continuous support !
