Viva Ernest!
2 November 2007 | by dbdumonteilSee all my reviews

Another far-fetched comedy by Christian-Jaque,not as good as "Raphael le Tatoué" or "Un de la Légion",it has funny moments although it is sometimes repetitive and confused.

In South America (where else?) anything can happen: the consul might give you as a snack to the sharks,you can wind up as a working man (slave) in a banana plantation,or as a recruit in the governor's navy .And there's always a fire squad waiting for you so you 'd better start a revolution!It takes all Fernandel's talent to go through this eventful journey.
