FRA | 1966 | dir. Philippe de Broca, with Adolfo Celi, Alan Bates, Françoise Christophe, Geneviève Bujold, Jean-Claude Brialy, Michel Serrault, Micheline Presle, Pierre Brasseur | new print

Since its release in 1966, King of Hearts has become a worldwide cult favourite and stands out as one of de Broca’s most memorable films. During WWI, Scottish soldier Private Plumpick is sent on a mission to disarm a bomb in a strange town occupied by the former residents of the local psychiatric hospital. With his reconnaissance and bomb-defusing mission looming, Plumpick starts to prefer the acceptance of the insane locals over the insanity of the war raging outside.
