Storyline

Magali plays in a brass band. Guillaume drives a small tourist train. Both spin a perfect love, they share modest dreams and their baby is about to come. But an unexpected news upsets their routine: a man appears and announces that he is Guillaume's estranged father and also reveals that Guillaume is his legitimate heir of a kingdom offshore of France and England. Guillaume and Magali start to dream of a life as monarchs, surrounded by faithful subjects in their castle, enjoying their wealth. But reality is often different to what you can imagine.

A real how -d'ye-do!
20 May 2018 | by dbdumonteilSee all my reviews

In France ,the idea was not much new ;in Roger Richebé's "Monseigneur"(1949) ,a historian claimed that a modest locksmith was the descendant of the kings of France,Louis XVII 's great grand-son.He had found documents which proved it.

In Buena Vista produced "King Guillaume " ,it's much more modest : the kingdom of Guerreland (= Warland) ,a tiny island in the Channel would return to England ,shouldn't a male apparent heir show up .Fortunately ,they discover that ,after a cock and bull adventure , a French who drives a toy train for tourists through the streets of his town is the man they look for ;his wife ,who plays the bass tuba in a brass band,is looking forward to becoming queen.

The prologue is appealing :a teacher ,in an old English school ,gives a class on Guerreland ,and his pupils asks pertinent questions ,often funny.

Afterward ,it's downhill : Pierre Richard should have turned down this part ;the funny moments are few and far between ;the screenplay had potential ,but the gags are heavy-handed ,repetitive ;Florence Foresti overplays ,trying to hog the stage ,to no avail .

The island is frog-shaped (because the French are supposed to eat frog legs at every lunch?) ;the heir on the boat screams "I'm the king!" a la Di Caprio on Titanic.And how can Buena Vista grant such a lousy budget to a movie?
