He did warn her he was the king of jerks. A photo? "Auntie"? So trapped in a past relationship that he can't even evolve to the one that could give him everything. Ending up dragging the woman who loves him down because she's so hopelessly in love. Coward, self-centered, unresolved.
Maïwenn is the queen of relationships as seen & felt by a woman. She's also the queen of dancefloor scenes & adorable wedding picnics.
CINEMANIA '15 One of the year's best. Emmanuelle Bercot richly deserved her Cannes win this year with this magnificent portrayal of a woman in a destructive relationship. What's novel is one can see the attraction of 'living out loud' in such a relationship but also the sour underside of being with a man who thrives on gratification. Cassel matches Bercot's intensity as director Maiwenn excels capturing passion.
Maïwenn really has a fantastic ability to make you feel like you're watching something unfold before your eyes. The screenplay and dialogues are some of the best I've seen in recent years. Same goes for Cassel and Bercot, they truly are exceptional in their roles.
It'something magic about this film. Done in such a natural way, i swear all of us could recognise the moments from our personal love stories here. With all its heavenly and all it's pain - love is around and the only meaning what makes us feel alive.
"Mon Roi" resonó conmigo. Al igual que Tony, sufrí un esguince en la rodilla derecha hace unos meses que me obligo a enfrentarme a mi lo que resistía, a reconocer donde había estado el mal. La incapacidad física funciona como un instrumento de recuperación emocional, un dolor hace que se olvide otro, parafraseandoa medias a Schopenhauer. Maïwenn es una directora que conoce a sus personajes y eso es lo que cuenta.
