A wonderful film that didn't make it to the US
22 January 2000 | by (Austin, Texas) – See all my reviews

This movie is about a Spanish king in the middle ages who decides one day that he'd like to see his wife naked. Gasp! The courtiers are appalled; his wife says ... "Why not?"; and the church begins an investigation. Out of all the hoohah over what today seems an ordinary request, only one man stands up for the king -- a Jesuit priest. The movie's depiction of the various reactions to the king's request is always interesting, and sometimes fascinating. It's a stylish, colorful production, and never lacks for beauty. The only problem I had with it was that I saw it in Paris, in Spanish with French subtitles, and so I probably missed half the jokes. Not all of them -- there are some wonderful visual jokes, like the man whose wife wants the church's permission to have sex with him, so the couple goes to a convent and has sex surrounded by a circle of nuns (all of them discreetly facing away, of course).
