FRA | 1982 | dir. Jean-Marie Poiré, with Christian Clavier, Thierry Lhermitte, Josiane Balasko , Marie-Anne Chazel, Gérard Jugnot, Anémone, Michel Blanc

This 80s French farce, an irreverent classic with a cult status, features brilliant performances from Christian Clavier, Thierry Lhermitte, Josianne Balasko and more at the top of their game. It all starts on Christmas Eve, when three suicide hotline workers find themselves at the centre of a vortex of rag-tag humanity and have to face increasingly zany situations and eccentric characters, from a Mrs Clause who turns out to be a bag lady to a woefully abject transvestite.
