 Grand Bazar

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.

Not 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) fifteen films.

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. Lost in Translation.
