"Les Apprentis Sorciers" is a thriller in which the characters are Latin-American exiles living in Paris. It is also a comedy about artists who play at revolution rather than actually participate in one.

Mrs Westinghouse orders some nuclear missiles to be launched against the saboteurs, but they manage to avoid the impact and even succeed in exposing a big secret of hers.Written by

When Sam is picked up from the building, with a rope ladder hanging
from the belly of the the B-29, for a brief moment the landing skids
of a helicopter are visible.
However, as the Aspect ratio listed for the film is 1.33 : 1 (negative
ratio) 1.85 : 1 (intended ratio), it leads me to believe we're seeing
things that were meant to be "matted" out at the top and bottom to
make the aspect ratio 1.85 : 1. There is also a scene where the
religious group is shooting or doing a commercial and we see a boom
microphone at the bottom of the screen. This also would have been
"matted" out at 1.85 : 1. See more »
The closing credits of the film include a video screen showing the film itself being played backwards at high speed. See more »

A group of Vietnam War veteran pilots try to discredit an ultra-conservative presidential candidate. Campy, low-brow satire of American politics, right-wing morality and the media. Very inexpensive film will probably appeal to Boomers who were in their youth during the 60's and early 70's. (Rating: B+)
