Sweet and Odd

8 years, 8 months ago at Sep 4 17:08
This is a sweet little anti-war movie from the '60s, with pretty people and a lovely location. Sometimes the characters are so odd as to feel Fellini-esque, but in much easier to swallow doses than Fellini. Fellini for people who don't like Fellini. However the plot is so simple as to be trite, and the movie drags in places. Nonetheless it is a sweet, fun little movie.

During the latter part of World War I, Private Charles Plumpick is chosen to go into the French town of Marville and disconnect a bomb that the German army has planted. However, Charles is chased by some Germans and finds himself holed up at the local insane asylum, where the inmates are convinced that he is the "King of Hearts." Feeling obligated to help the inmates, Charles attempts to lead them out of town, but they are afraid to leave and frolic about the streets in gay costumes. Will Charles be able to deactivate the bomb in time and save his newfound friends?
