Much more fun than the Romans

Dir. Stefan Fjelmark and Jesper Moller

Starring Roger Carel, Lorànt Deutsch and Sara Forestier

The comic book / graphic novel turned into film, as per usual.

I don’t know if kids growing up today read much at all, let alone a 50 year old series of comic books, but Asterix was a part of everyone who grew up in the 70’s and 80’s in Sweden. Among other classic french and belgian serials like Lucky Luke, Tintin, Spirou, Blueberry, Finn och Fiffi (Suske en Wiske) etc, it was read by one and all, and readily available for loan at the local library.

The “heritage” has yet to be ruined. Despite updating the music and a few minor jokes, the look and feel of Asterix is very much intact. The animation is top-notch, and the 3d-to-2d rendering looks consistently good. Storywise, it’s just cosily familiar and fun, mostly harmless entertainment. If you know how it goes, it’ll live up to your expectations. If you don’t, this is as good a chapter as any to get introduced.
