MY KING
MON ROI
2015, Film Movement, 124 min, France, Dir: Maïwenn

Emmanuelle Bercot earned a Best Actress award at the Cannes Film Festival for her affecting turn as Tony, a young woman sidelined by a skiing accident who falls in love with the charming if tempestuous Georgio (Vincent Cassel, also superb). In sharp contrast to typical movie romances, MON ROI has a raw honesty that draws viewers to these characters even as clouds gather on their horizon. “Maïwenn remains underappreciated by the critical community, but that will change after the world experiences MON ROI, a movie that may sound anti-romantic but is just the opposite: boldly ultra-romantic, of the sort that has turned French pics (like JULES AND JIM or A MAN AND A WOMAN) into worldwide hits before.” - Peter Debruge, Variety In French with English subtitles.
