Storyline

Based on the novel of the same name by Maurice Druon, Les Rois maudits (The Cursed Kings) is the second television adaptation of this seven-volume book which is widely agreed to be an accurate representation of actual events. It is the early 1300's and the treasury of France, under the rule of Philippe IV (Philippe le Bel or Philippe the Beautiful), is empty. The king decides the only solution is to raid the treasures of the Knights Templar (amongst others) and concocts various charges of treason, heresy and deviance against the Knights and their Grand Master Jacques de Molay. Having confessed under torture to the crimes of which he is accused, de Molay is condemned to be burned at the stake. With his dying breath he curses the king, the king's advisor (Guillaume de Nogaret), the pope (Pope Clement V) and the thirteen succeeding generations of their families. There follows one of the most dramatic periods in French history, half a century of political intrigue, murder, treason, war ... Written by But_Siriusly

Jeanne Moreau
26 May 2014 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

she is the pillar of this admirable adaptation.a series who preserves the flavor of novel and create the best picture for discover the roots of a period. who has the energy to seduce in better manner than many history movies and who gives to fascination splendid form. and that fact is result of a cast who seems create a kind of circle around Jeanne Moreau. heart of story, soul of film, using the experience of a long career, she creates a role who is not only good or convincing but who becomes, episode by episode, a form of embroidery of nuances. it is not exactly the case of lead actress who gives sense to show but the precision of exploration the script possibilities and the geography of character. a film who reminds high level Shakespeare BBC adaptations and remains loyal to Druon masterpiece. that is its secret. and the basic motif for see it.
