Astérix et Obélix contre César Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

Asterix and Obelix, the French comic book heroes created by [[Performer~P119349~René Goscinny~renégoscinny]] and [[Performer~P229353~Albert Underzo~albertuderzo]] (their adventures have sold 280 million copies to date in Europe), are brought to the big screen in their first live-action adventure. Set in 50 B.C., Asterix ([[Performer~P85207~Christian Clavier~christianclavier]]) and Obelix ([[Performer~P87517~Gérard Depardieu~gérarddepardieu]]) are a pair of comedic heroes living in a small but well-protected village in Gaul, where a magic potion concocted by Druids turns the townsfolk into mighty soldiers. When Roman troops carve a path through Gaul to reach the English Channel, Caesar ([[Performer~P35723~Gottfried John~gottfriedjohn]]) and his aide de camp Detritus ([[Performer~P81377~Roberto Benigni~robertobenigni]]) discover the secret elixir and capture the Druid leader who knows its formula, and Asterix and Obelix are sent off to rescue them. Shot in Brittany, Bavaria, and Arpajon, Asterix et Obelix Contre Cesar brings these cartoon characters to life on a grand scale; it was reportedly the most expensive French-language film ever, at a cost of 274 million francs ($48 million). ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
