The Story Behind the Story of La Soupe aux Choux
It was only after watching a film about French cheese, that I remembered how the name of the film came to be. Two French farmers living in the countryside of France are visiting alien beings, who display an obvious fondness for their freshly-baked cheddar soup.
After a while they decide to try some of the food that they have brought with them and to offer it to the visitor in exchange for some of his/her cheddar soup. The alien agrees but does not take a bite, and then begins to speak to the French farmer. It is at this point that the farmer realizes he has made a wrong turn and has inadvertently stumbled into a film entitled La Soupe aux Choux (The Soup of My Dreams).
What the film’s plot is not so clear. However, according to some French and Belgian sources, this film was based on a real incident that happened to the two French farmers. These sources say that the farmers and the alien were at war with each other, and that the French farmer had decided to offer some of his cheddar soup to the alien as a gesture of peace. Some other sources say that the story goes like this:
The farmer arrives home one day to find a small but attractive alien girl who tells him that she will give him and his family a free pass to the land of dreams. However, the aliens have come looking for someone who can prove that they are the rightful owner of the land. They offer the farm boy a chance to prove his worth to them.
The farmer goes to the aliens and gives them a few bottles of wine and cheese. He then offers to prove to the aliens that he is the true owner of the land and that the aliens cannot enter unless they prove their claim.
To convince the aliens of his loyalty, he tells them that if they do not return the bottle of wine and the cheese, he will leave it behind and he will return it to them when the time comes. When the aliens arrive, the farmers show them the bottle of wine and the cheese and tell them that they have been duped. and the alien takes them to their home planet.
Meanwhile, the farmer makes preparations to leave for the alien’s home, and then he discovers that the farmer is already gone, and all the farm boy has done is to prepare a casserole for the aliens. The farm boy then finds that the aliens have decided to return to the farmer’s planet as well, and they prepare to fight.
Eventually the aliens win and are able to escape to their home, but the farm boy goes back to the farm. There he gives the farmer’s daughter the bottle of wine, and he asks her if it would not be better if he were to give it to the aliens? She says that it is her father’s wish, but he refuses and tells her to make sure that he gives it to the aliens.
The farm boy returns to the aliens, telling them about the bottle of wine he received, but he is unable to get any information from them because they are afraid of him. One day, when the aliens are asleep, the farmer suddenly appears before the aliens and in order to save the day, he tells the alien’s all about the farm boy’s actions.
The aliens accept the farmer’s offer, and he tells them that the farm boy must come with them to their planet to prove that he is indeed the rightful owner of the land. They tell the farm boy that he must go to a place where he will find the stone from which he must touch to become his own king.
The farm boy, accompanied by the farmers, travels to the place where he must give the stone to the king and the two of them enter the cave where the stone is kept. In order to prove that they are his king, they must touch the stone.
Once, the farm boy touches the stone and is transformed into a king, the king accepts him and allows him to rule. He is now a king of his own country, but he and his people are now free to go to their planet.
