The Death of louis XIV / La Mort de Louis XIV (18)

louisAs he comes back from hunting, Louis XIV feels a pain in his leg… Two weeks later, he is deeply ill and has to stay in bed at Versailles. This is the start of the agony of the most important king of France, surrounded by his relatives. For his fourth film Catalan director Abert Serra has crafted a ravishing, darkly witty evocation of 18th-century aristocracy and a neo-classical period piece reminiscent of Visconti and Rossellini.
