bent Ro­man hege­mony con­tin­ues un­abated. Or it would do if it weren’t for that one pesky Gaul vil­lage with the magic po­tion. If only there was some way to as­sim­i­late these long-time hold-outs? Maybe ar­chi­tec­ture is the an­swer? Surely a few Corinithian col­umns will raz­zle-daz­zle the un­ruly proto-Bre­tons into sub­mis­sion? The lat­est cheap and cheer­ful As­terix an­i­ma­tion is based on one of their fun­ni­est ad­ven­tures. Some great jokes re­main, but the vi­su­als will burn your eyes out.
