LA MORT DE LOUIS XIV
France, Portugal, Spain | 2016 | Albert Serra
Jean-Pierre Léaud stars in the highly acclaimed new film from Catalan maverick Albert Serra, who specializes in minimalist historical dramas that humanize larger-than-life figures (Don Quixote, Dracula, Casanova, the Magi). His latest work brings France’s powerful Sun King down to earth, re-creating the ailing monarch’s final days in his Versailles bed chamber, surrounded by concerned doctors and counselors. “A mesmerizing elegy.” –The NY Times. “The most beautiful film at Cannes 2016.” –Sight & Sound. Subtitles. DCP. 115 min.
