a french clownery during the Césarian Empire
17 September 2003 | by See all my reviews

Despite I am a french man I can say that this movie (made to laught at the characters) is a piece of clownery: so it is pitiable! Furthermore, this film is blasphemous , free of charge, without any historical background. I am not a puritan but so many grimaces are too much for any interest! Jean Yanne, the chief of the staff had to pay taxes to the State, may be. It is an opinion, no more!
