The Death of Louis XIV

The Death of Louis XIV

Albert Serra’s humanising of historical figures continues with this tale of the dying days of the Sun King.

1960s-era Truffaut and Godard regular Jean-Pierre Léaud takes on the titular role, bringing more than a little wit to the drama, while Serra’s studied camerawork hones in on the minutiae of the monarch’s daily routine and the resplendent beauty of his opulent life.
