Storyline

Based on a true story set around turn-of-the-century France, it follows the lives of two men: Joseph Pujol and Dr. Marcel Baudouin. Pujol was an entertainer at the Moulin Rouge who was gifted with a unique backside, which could take in and release air in measured increments thus producing amazing and humorous noises. Dr. Baudouin was obsessed with Joseph's "instrument" and pursued him doggedly for many years, ultimately resulting in his undoing. Written by Steve Ochs

Belly Laughs (no pun intended). Cinematic grandeur . And educational too!
2 February 2006 | by skippywithnutsSee all my reviews

Based on the true life of one of the most unusual entertainers in history (understatement), this film tells his story without "Joking it up". The actual fact that a performer could perfect and become so popular with this particular skill set is so bizarre that everything about his passion and drive to succeed is inherently funny. The filmmakers bear hug this notion including smart casting that doesn't ham it up, but rather organically explores the truths of these bizarre real life characters and events... I was really impressed with the big budget studio look and feel of the film, some of the locations were startling... Causing myself the ask, "How'd they shoot that?"

This film is a bright spot for dark comedies. My favorite moment? An extremely memorable climatic scene (understatement), that makes me laugh every time i think about it.
