La Folie des Grandeurs Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

This French historical comedy/farce, loosely based on Victor Hugo's play Ruy Blas, benefits greatly from having [[Performer~P17728~Louis De Funes~louisdefunès]] and [[Performer~P50113~Yves Montand~yvesmontand]] 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
