THE DEATH OF LOUIS XIV

(La mort de Louis XIV)

Directed by ALBERT SERRA/France/Spain/2016/1 hr, 55mins.

With Jean-Pierre Léaud, Bernard Belin, Phillippe Crespeau


Versailles, August 1715. After going for a walk, Louis XIV (Jean-Pierre Léaud) feels a pain in his leg. The next days, the Sun King fulfills his duties and obligations, but he has trouble sleeping. A serious fever erupts, which marks the start of the slow agony of the greatest King of France. Surrounded by doctors and family, he struggles to run the country from his bed. Based on extensive medical records and the memoirs of the Duke of Saint-Simon and other courtiers, The Death of Louis XIV is a magistral, neoclassical chamber drama, a work of pure magic. (In French with English subtitles).
