Critic Reviews for Le Magnifique

All Critics (2) | Top Critics (1)

Across Cartouche and Le Magnifique, Philippe de Broca truly manages to have his cake and eat it too.

About 20 minutes in, the film takes a narrative turn - one I did not see coming, but even if you do, just adds layers to the work and then doesn't let up.

Audience Reviews for Le Magnifique


French movie released in 1973, starring the stunning Jacqueline Bisset and Jean-Paul Belmondo. Francois Merlin is an espionnage-book writer. Francois Merlin is an espionnage-book writer. Le Magnifique is a slapstick spoof of B-series espionage movies and novels.Great fun, this absolutely crazy comedy is very original and unique.All the Austin Powers movies are based on this.
