Astérix et les Vikings (2006, FRA/DEN) C-78m. ** D: Stefan Fjeldmark, Jesper Möller. Starring (the voices of) Roger Carel, Lorànt Deutsch, Sara Forestier, Jacques Frantz, narrated by Pierre Tchnernia. Adequate continuation of the comic strip series about a Gallic community (among them the super-strong Astérix and Obelix), which has managed to resist the Romans around Caesar's time. Here, they are faced with a hip relative who is kidnapped by invading Vikings. Not bad, quite well-animated adventure also adds modern touches. The 10th entry in the series (not counting the live-action movies). English title: ASTERIX AND THE VIKINGS.
