I do not want to die unnoticed
9 December 2007 | by See all my reviews

What can people do to draw people's attention?Some go as far as killing their fellow men to achieve that;

Louis ,a humble craftsman, inherits a lot of money.He's got fortune,but he wants fame too.He has his friend Einstein(sic) take photographs of him among crowds of celebrities.He sends them to the Police and threatens to commit crime as "Armaguedon".

Alain Jessua was certainly one of the most underrated of the French directors of that era:"traitement de choc" (probably his most successful effort)"les chiens" and "paradis pour tous" all ventured off the beaten track;they were sometimes close to sci-fi. While "Armaguedon" seems more realistic,it is an absorbing thriller.
