Enjoyable, highly original but falls short of fantastic
9 October 2007 | by See all my reviews

I went to an advance screening without any prejudices although I was not really fascinated by the scent of mythical comedy. Sa Majesté Minor proves to be mostly funny but I feel now it should have geared into something still crazier at some point halfway through the movie.

Would it have been too easy, too mundane to let Minor become a fully fledged tyrant? To let him become a political beast, and leave behind gradually his buoyant humane bestiality? Eventually I am a bit disappointed Gerard Brach's last story is not more of a fantastic fable. As such the movie is a pagan tidbit while I think Brach could have made it a universal tale. JJ Annaud too could have make this story take off instead of sealing off narration in and around the -almost Gallic- village. Moreover I think the narration titles are ugly, they do not make up for the lack of a comic chorus that would have bound the story together.

In a nutshell let's say Minor is a nice character, nice to a fault since the movie aims to keep the same comic pace all along while the story seems to require a change in rhythm.
