Docudrama about the life of Louis XIV nicknamed "the Sun King", the King of France who ran a glamorous court, expanded the borders of France, loved woman and parties and built an incredible palace for himself - the Versailles.

Good suspense, genuine, NOT overloaded emotions, breezzy and warm atmosphere, delicacy in speech, in light, in figures - a delight ;-)
