Augustin, Roi du Kung-Fu (Augustin, King of Kung-Fu) Reviews
Dos Santos' antics makes for a silly yet funny movie. With his mind firmly made up to follow his dream, he goes to the next best location - Chinatown in France. As he enrolls himself in a martial arts class, he finds he has a problem with human contact. Thus he finds an acupuncturist Ling (Maggie Cheung).
Colorful characters make the movie quite enjoyable. Darry Cowl, famous French comedian plays Augustin's possessive friend. The film is simple yet elegant. It's a quiet movie you will certainly enjoy amidst the rainy season with a nice cup of coffee on hand.
