    Rabbi Jacob is a fine French comedy that features the impressive talents of famous French actor Louis de Funes in one of his greatest roles. If you enjoy French comedies and you understand the gags, you're sure to really appreciate this one for what it is. The comedy is sharp, well written and above all smart. This is effective tasteful comedy that manages to make you laugh due to the great acting of Funes, who is always great in his roles. Funes commands the screen with such intensity that you are sucked into his performance. He has as, kill that few comedic actors had. Rabbi Jacob is a fine picture that is a must see for fans of the genre, and it is a fine comedy that is a classic of French cinema. This is pure comedy gold, the way it is meant to be seen. Nowadays, comedies rely on crude, vulgar jokes to create its humor. However with this classic, you get effective, well written comedy that is over the top fun, yet very tasteful. Louis de Funes was a comedic genius, a true talent, not like the so called comedians of today. His skill as an actor in the comedic medium is to be admired, and enjoyed to the fullest. I view him as one of the comedy innovators and if you come across his work, due to yourself a favor, and check it out, you'll be glad you did. With that being said, Rabbi Jacob is a perfect starting point for Funes' work and in my opinion is one of the defining foreign comedies that like I stated, if you understand the language, you'll laugh hard from the start of the film onwards. Louis de Funes has made other great movies of course, but Rabbi Jacob is really the one that sticks out the most and for people that want to get into this talented actors filmography, this is the film to watch. A masterwork of Foreign comedy, Rabbi Jacob is flawless and worth seeking out.

    Victor Pivert (Louis de Funès) é um homem que não tem nada contra imigrantes, desde que negros, judeus e árabes não se aproximem dele. Durante a viagem para o casamento da filha, ele se mete em diversas aventuras que o fazem mudar seus preconceitos. Para sair das confusões Victor precisa se passar por rabino, sendo até mesmo confundido com um negro quando o escapamento de seu carro estoura em seu rosto e o deixa coberto de fuligem.

    marrant, toujours avec de Funès, et des scènes classiques comme la 'panthire'...et un bonne perspective sur le racisme/xenophisme qui peut heureusement changer quand on rencontre vraiment l'autre...
