Un peuple et son roi

Pierre Schöller France, 2018

Karim Seif's rating of the film One Nation, One King

Series of historical paintings played by a skewer filled with actors of academic theater and some movie stars who all play more or less badly by lashing us with masterly speeches. The rare moments of "cinema" are kitsch and tasteless. Even worse, the dramatic continuity tries to make an experimental film and fails with sadness. Read a story book about this period and you will earn much more than watching this movie.
