TheArmy and the Church.
Scandals in the small village of Clochemerle where a baroness and a bunch of churchy holier-than -thou women rebel against the building of a public urinal on the village square .But there' s a whole lot of things going on in the place:a child of Mary getting pregnant by a village idiot which the Army made a corporal of ,women cheating on their husbands ,a vicar overtaken by events.... In order to save the third Republic (!)the Army arrives and declares a state of emergency complete with curfew .A violent spoof on both the Church and the Army,this movie still retains some funny moments but the caricature is too ponderous and the many bawdy lines might be off-putting for today's audience.
