Storyline

Through a quirk in the space time continuun the three magi (the director Didier Bourdon as Balthazar, Bernard Campan as Melchior, and Pascal Legitimus as Gaspard) find themselves in various parts of the modern world in their quest for the christ child. Their paths merge in Paris. On their quest they touch people's lives where their reactions to values and technology give rise to much humour. Their identity is guessed by a canny marketer who recognises their commercial potential, takes advantage of their naivette, and ruthlessly exploits them. They become instant celebrities, but soon become jaded and disillusioned. They opt out, resuming their quest with a reluctant assistant Macha (Virginie de Clausade),who has problems of her own. Eventually they return to their own era.

Très amusant
19 December 2004 | by IRHolderSee all my reviews

I saw this movie last night on TV: and I haven't laughed so much for a very long time.

The first hour or so, when the three Magi make their way to Paris, and then explore, had me in stitches. Their "old world" speech and actions in today' world lent itself to much humour. The high level of humour dropped off at the half way point and things became a bit darker, though still funny.

Yet I still greatly enjoyed the movie. Plenty to ponder, especially as Christmas becomes all the more material and commercial. The idea of a bit of magic in today's world, and something people can believe in, struck a chord with me.
