sorry for the mistakes!
Clownerie, gag, paradoxical
situations and vague references to comedy by Luis de Funes.
Simple ingredients for a movie that after a number of years (exactly
thirty-seven) still manages to smile in its simplicity and even more
amazingly manages to be a satire of our current society.
bad really. Lightweight, quick and nice find. The protagonists of this
French film of 1973 are the "Les Charlots" ensemble of
musicians active from 1960 and quite famous in France for over twenty
years. From music insane, much appreciated among the other (the magazine
Rolling Stone called them the best French group in the
studio and they opened a concert of the Rolling Stones), the quartet
came to the movies playing in 1970 until 1984 (plus a revival in 1992)
In "Le Grand Bazar" by Claude Zidi
four Charlots touch, according to some critics, their highest
cinematic moment obviously playing four light-hearted boys full of
beautiful and weird ideas.
This group likes to hang out and losing
their jobs and then launch into a serious war against a supermarket,
brand new, threatening the business of a little shop their friend.
Between various plans more or less running the better idea is to steal
it piece by piece the merchandise in the supermarket, in the most
diverse and absurd ways, until the "final plan" to do a robbery that
never gets made.
Laugh never vulgar, on a plot at all obvious
and not at all tiring. If we would just do the critics we might say
that "Grand Bazar" is a film- no global that seeks to
protect local values versus the imperialism of multinationals.
We don't know if Zidi and Charlots had these goals, but it does not matter, what
matters is that this is just a funny movie. Distributed abroad takes the
Italian version of a title that we can not justify "Five Crazy at Supermarket" Five effective against the four main actors.
