User Reviews: I viewed this film in my French class (the original french language version). Everyone in my class thought the British characters were hysterical because of their accents while speaking French. It is funny to see how the French make fun of their rivals in Britain. It is also fun to see the barbaric architectural style of London with Big Ben and Parliament made of wood! I would not recommend this film for a person who does not speak French or who is not familiar with the historical background of the film (The Gallo-Roman period in France). Even with the animation style that characteristic of the eighties, it is still fun to watch and see the French version of history.
