delicate homage
3 April 2013 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

a king and his period. portrait of a world and sketch of a man who must be king. a delicate homage to Louis XVI. and beautiful manner to present, in a form of docudrama, the reign of a special French character. I confess - Louis XVI was one of my childhood heroes and this film is occasion to discover a warm gentle trip in heart of his time, full of care and respect, in few moments childish, in another - touching, good exercise to present not only atmosphere but landscape of soul of a man and his deep solitude across years, his good intentions as Spanish castles and his fall as helplessness in middle of French court for who he is a puppet or a prisoner, an instrument or a shadow. a beautiful film. great for its measure and subtle script.a lesson of history. or, only, portrait of a victim with air of character from old Greek tragedy.
