Set in the final days of World War I, this cult film tells what happens when a Scottish army private (Alan Bates) unwittingly becomes the "king" of a group of asylum inmates who have overtaken a French village. Directed by Phillipe De Broca, this high-speed farce offers poignant commentary on the nature of war and on the fine line separating sanity from madness.
