Deux heures moins le quart avant Jésus-Christ

Deux heures moins le quart avant Jésus-Christ (Quarter To Two B.C.) is a 1982 French film directed by Jean Yanne. The film relates the story of the garage mechanic Ben-Hur Marcel, also known as Aminemephet (Coluche), who gets wrapped up organizing a plot against Caesar (Michel Serrault). The picture is an anachronistic parody of Bible films like Ben-Hur, somewhat comparable to Monty Python's Life of Brian (1979). It has become a cult film in France.[2]
