Via Memoriae Classicae I: Asterix and Cleopatra | res gerendae
For the movie that genuinely made a major impression on my childhood appreciation of Classics I wanted to watch Asterix in Britain, which Father Christmas brought my brother some time in the early 90s. Doubt the historical accuracy of the nonetheless creepy depiction of occupied Londinium!
And above all, enjoy the catchy theme tune.

Sadly the trailer omits the scene of the Roman general practising his first-declension endings. Incidentally, my brother and I also had Asterix vs. So anyway, Asterix and Cleopatra. The film begins with a mini-lecture on what spoken ancient Egyptian sounded like.

I have reason to believe, however, that it falls somewhat short of strict linguistic accuracy. I know this was the 60s, but even by the standards of the time this is pretty poorly directed, animated and edited. Asterix in Britain was much better. Our first glimpse of Egypt is as a hive of activity, swarms of identical labourers toiling with regimented efficiency. These are paid workers whose tea-breaks, commutes and fractious industrial relations are the source of much drama as the story unfolds.
No ethnic stereotypes here, guv, honest. Probably the standout moment for race-relations comes during the obligatory run-in with the hapless pirates, where the African lookout literally turns white with fear.
Cleopatra, last pharaoh of Egypt. Bathing in milk, lavish dining — you know the drill. Oh, and a charmless singing and dancing lion.

Scantily clad dancing girls. Now, this came as something of a surprise.
He turns her down, informing her that he prefers sausage and the taste of meat in his mouth. Classics, meet the s. Do try to get on. But what illumination can the power of Classics shed on it? However, Lucullus takes advantage of the situation, capturing the pair and transporting them to a Roman galley bound for the "world's edge".
When Asterix and Obelix spot the galley and the captured druid on it, they quickly go in pursuit, sinking a pirate ship in the process, before losing sight of the Romans when a violent storm blows them off course.
However, their hope of rescuing Getafix are restored, when a dolphin appears to guide them back to the Romans, after reuniting them with Dogmatix shortly after he had been dropped overboard by Lucullus.
As evening begins to approach, the galley arrives before the North American coastline which the Romans mistakenly believe to be the world's edge.Asterix and Cleopatra (1968) [Eng Dubbed FULL MOVIE]
Discovering that the Gauls are back on their tail, Lucullus has Getafix launched quickly by catapult towards the coast, and is amused when Asterix and Obelix wreck their boat while making landfall.
Returning to Rome with the good news, Caesar quickly begins moving men to Gaul to lay siege to the village, until its remaining magic potion runs out. Unbeknown to Caesar and Lucullus, Asterix and Obelix find themselves venturing out into North America, whereupon they begin to explore the land for Getafix.
However, night soon falls, and the pair decide to make camp until the morning, whereupon Obelix manages to capture some of the indigenous turkeys which he refers to as a "gobble-gobble".
The next morning, while Obelix is out of the camp hunting for breakfast, Asterix is captured by Native Americans and taken to their village, where he soon finds himself tied to a pole alongside Getafix and menaced by the Natives and their Medicine Man. Obelix, whose hunt saw him catching a Native American and mistakenly thinking he is a disguised Roman, quickly learns his friend is missing after finding his discarded helmet, and quickly begins searching for him with Dogmatix's help.
During his search, Obelix manages to save Minihooha, the daughter of the Native American's chief, from a stampede of bison, who bring him back to her village just in the nick of time to save his friends from harm.
After impressing the chief with his strength by besting his champion, Asterix and Getafix are released and the group are welcomed into the village, much to the annoyance of the Medicine Man, who is further humiliated when Getafix proves to be a superior magician.
That night, after a party, the medicine man pretends to offer peace, but instead gives all three hallucinogens in a pipe, which knocks them all out.
