The Sun King’s journey into night. A minor irritation turns grave, toppling the most powerful monarch in Europe. As he lays, bewigged, on his deathbed, France swirls around him – his son, his mistress, his courtiers, his doctors, his priests and his dogs – mingling their schemes with the dire threat facing the state itself. Visionary director Albert Serra (Songbird, 33rd) shot this richly-detailed demise of Louis with the powerful portrayal of Jean-Pierre Léaud at the center of it all, nearly six decades after The 400 Blows.
