Movie Info

This French historical comedy/farce, loosely based on Victor Hugo's play Ruy Blas, benefits greatly from having Louis De Funes and Yves Montand in the roles of Saluste and Blaze. Saluste is a nobleman who has been exiled from court and sent to collect taxes in the countryside. Blaze is his assistant, who manages to help the overtaxed peasants behind his boss's back. When Saluste decides to resume meddling in the monarch's affairs using Blaze as his henchman, his schemes backfire badly. ~ Clarke Fountain, Rovi

Audience Reviews for La folie des grandeurs (Delirios de grandeza) (Delusions of Grandeur)

½

This decidely French parody of the American Western, which manages to spoof much of French cinema also, is probably too culturally opaque to be fairly critiqued by me, but apparently true Francophiles find it hilarious.
