Storyline

In this off beat account of King Arthur's quest for the Grail, virtually every journey, battle or adventure is stopped dead in its tracks by the knights of the round table's most worldly traits : cowardice, greed, idiocy or misplaced chivalry. As a consequence, instead of epic adventures we are treated with the characters' pragmatic and anachronistic take on each and every event in the Grail legend, true to the purest sitcom tradition.

Trivia

The director, Alexandre Astier, cast his parents, Lionnel Astier and Joëlle Sevilla, as Guinièvre's parents. He cast his half-brother Simon Astier as Guinièvre's brother (so that Lionnel and Simon, who are father and son, play father and son). He cast Simon's mother, Josée Drevon, as Arthur's mother Ygerne. Since Alexandre Astier plays Arthur, he is thus surrounded by his own family. He and his father look so much alike that the comic book artist Steven Dupré had to make Léodagan (Lionnel's character) look fatter so that he would not be confused with King Arthur. See more »

King Arthur, Monty Python and Michel Audiard all rolled into one
3 October 2005 | by TwiskSee all my reviews

In the beginning, I thought, "Oh no, not yet another mockery of the search for the Holy Grail!" I watched, though, and by the end of the first mini-episode, I was totally taken in. The dialogs are brilliant, witty, absurd, and screamingly funny. I honestly don't find any faults with this little jewel. I didn't know we, french, could be as good and daring as Monty Python... We can. It's a relief. Thanks to Alexandre Astier, who dared come out with a preposterous idea (King Arthur is the only intelligent guy in a environment of dorks, dimwits and blockheads: namely, the knights of the Round Table), the tradition of Audiard carries on. The best french TV series I've seen in a very long time.
