Der Tod von Ludwig XIV.

A film by Albert Serra.  In french with ger­man subtitles.

A king lea­ves this world, slow­ly but ine­vi­ta­b­ly. A few more jokes about a naked madam, attempts to con­ti­nue his offi­cial duties while a group of doc­tors whis­pe­ring by the edge of the bed. A repre­sen­ta­tio­nal dra­ma of an era, distil­led into an exu­berant inti­ma­te play.
