Design sans titre-118

Two cavemen team up to form a tribe, but things get complicated when Atouk falls in love with Tonda’s girlfriend.
Caveman is a burlesque strongly reminiscent of the humour of Mad magazine, with ex-Beatles Ringo Starr playing a poor wretch who is the scapegoat of his tribe. The entire screenplay is in a deliciously primitive language. We also discover that the first tune invented by humans was a piece by Lalo Schifrin.
