The Death Of Louis XIV (12A)
Dir: Albert Serra, Fr, 2016, 116 mins, French dialogue with subtitles
Jean-Pierre Léaud, Patrick d’Assumçao, Marc Susini

A mesmerising chamber drama playing out the final month in the life of the Sun King, superbly performed by Léaud. A profound reflection on mortality, with a clinical style inspired by anatomical drawings, medical reports and courtly memoirs of the time.
