Masters of Cinema crowns the KING OF HEARTS (Review)

When word reaches the Allied Forces that the Germans have left a bomb in a village they are set to liberate, the Scottish brigade recruit a meek ornithologist to infiltrate the village and disarm the bomb.  Unbeknownst to him, the villagers have already fled and the town is now populated by the escaped inmates of the local asylum who proclaim him the KING OF HEARTS in Philippe de Broca's stirring anti-war comedy.
