Armaguedon (1976)

Armaguedon (1976, FRA/ITA) C-93m. ** D: Alain Jessua. Starring Alain Delon, Jean Yanne, Renato Salvatori, Michel Duchaussoy, Michel Creton. Uneven drama about working class guy Yanne, who suddenly inherits a lot of money and dreams of an extravagant existence. To achieve international fame he becomes a dangerous blackmailer (calling himself Armaguedon), and with the help of his dim-witted assistant Salvatori soon attracts the attention of psychologist Delon. Well-intended drama is too slow at the beginning but ends intriguingly. A showcase much more for Yanne than Delon, who produced the film and shows himself in an impeccable light. Director Jessua scripted, from a novel by David Lippincott. Also known as ARMAGEDDON.
