I think this is the best of all the Asterix stories.
Well, well, well... I managed to find this movie one morning in late December of 1994, so I could record it on my VCR, and I have watched it now and then ever since. About "Asterix" in general, I can only say, that I only like it for one thing: Its historical setting and its mention of ancient gods and goddesses. Otherwise, it can't compare to let's say "Tintin" when it comes to quality. But about this story in particular, where the Gauls Asterix, Obelix and Getafix have to go to Egypt to help queen Cleopatra's architect to build a temple for Julius Ceasar within three months, I must say, that it has to be one of my favorite "Asterix" stories of all time.
