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.
The movie is maddening. I went to see it in the cinema three times. It is about everything that you love and hate about life. If you can picture yourself in the main woman's role, there is no doubt this film will touch you to the deepest. Though, I'm not a fan of the flashback kind of movies, in this film the flashbacks seemed natural and well put.
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.
"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.
