In this off beat account of King Arthur's quest for the Grail, virtually every journey, battle or adventure is stopped dead in its tracks by the knights of the round table's most worldly traits : cowardice, greed, idiocy or misplaced chivalry. As a consequence, instead of epic adventures we are treated with the characters' pragmatic and anachronistic take on each and every event in the Grail legend, true to the purest sitcom tradition.

Did You Know?


The director, Alexandre Astier, cast his parents, Lionnel Astier and Joëlle Sevilla, as Guinièvre's parents. He cast his half-brother Simon Astier as Guinièvre's brother (so that Lionnel and Simon, who are father and son, play father and son). He cast Simon's mother, Josée Drevon, as Arthur's mother Ygerne. Since Alexandre Astier plays Arthur, he is thus surrounded by his own family. He and his father look so much alike that the comic book artist Steven Dupré had to make Léodagan (Lionnel's character) look fatter so that he would not be confused with King Arthur. See more »

User Reviews

A great and well-written TV show
11 August 2005 | by natanutsSee all my reviews

First, I must say that I'm far from being a fan of french humour or french comedies. But this TV-show, in spite of its shortness, is brilliant. Some of its lines have already become mythical, as the "For example, you take the present day, you wait for a week, well you'll end up with the same day as today! But be careful, you might make a mistake, it's not an accurate science..." (approximately translated). Perceval, King Arthur and Leodagan are real funny characters. I have rarely met such smartness on words, on images, I recommend this show to any amateurs of parodies and besides the costumes and sets are great and well used.
