Movie Info

This comedy finds a family turned upside down by a new addition to the house. Hubert (Louis De Funes) and his wife (Claude-Gensac) are shocked to discover her grandfather has been found frozen in a block of ice at the South Pole. Scientists revive the man, who still appears to be 25 years old. Hubert is reluctant to take in the man until he learns he is extremely wealthy. Doctors keep the news of the man's fortune from him and swear Hubert to secrecy so the man won't suddenly die from the shock. Hubert is full of familial affection for his wife's grandfather, who is mistaken for Hubert's son. The grandfather ends up marrying the fiancee of Hubert's son. Although the premise for this story is amusing, it was used in the American television program "The Second Hundred Years" in 1967 and should hardly be considered original.

Audience Reviews for Hibernatus

  • Jun 30, 2013
    Hibernatus is yet another comedic gem from Louis de Funes who displays his comedic genius in this classic comedy. The story is great and quite silly. French comedies are quite different and rely more on wit than on-screen gags. This is what makes these films worth seeing. Funes as usual is hilarious and he delivers a comical tour de force performance that is sure to delight fans of the genre. If you're looking for a great French comedy, then this is one that is worth checking out. Hibernatus is a film that ranks up there as one of Louis de Funes' best films and is entertaining from the first shot onwards. The originality of the plot is what keeps you involved as well as Funes' knack for delivery. He is a fine, talented comic and the cast around him are equally good and they all bring something great to the screen. The plot is well thought out and whimsical in terms of comedy and it works well enough to keep you involved from start to finish. What I love the most about French comedies is that they do something totally different from American comedies, they're more interesting in certain ways and the gags are better thought out with people that can actually be funny and act. Hibernatus is a great comedy that if you love Funes' work, you will surely enjoy this film. French comedies don't get any better than this. With effective acting, and well written script, this is a must watch for genre fans looking for another wonderful French comedy that is sure to make them laugh with sharp humor and memorable performances.
