LA MORT DE LOUIS XIV
France, Portugal, Spain | 2016 | Albert Serra
French screen icon Jean-Pierre Léaud is the brilliant, fitting choice to star in this minimalist historical drama about the final days of France’s powerful Sun King—seen here as an ailing, all-too-mortal monarch surrounded by concerned doctors and counselors in his Versailles bed chamber. This one-of-a-kind work, a neglected candidate for best film of the year, is as serene and static as most movies are loud and busy. Subtitles. DCP. 115 min.
