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.
