FRA/PRT/ESP | 2016 | dir. Albert Serra, with Jean-Pierre Léaud, Patrick d’Assumçao, Marc Susini

Catalan director Albert Serra (Birdsong, Story of My Death) continues his contemplative series of studies of legendary figures, both real and fictional (Don Quixote, the Magi, Casanova) with this elegant, mesmerising evocation of the last days of the Sun King. The legendary Jean-Pierre Léaud brings ineffable presence to the title role.
