“Jean-Pierre Léaud clearly knows something about living in a kind of box, and he plays Louis as a tired but majestic wreck. He’s riveting, and a little alarming.” Glenn Kenny, The New York Times. Upon returning from a hunting expedition, King Louis XIV feels a sharp pain in his leg and soon begins to die, surrounded by loyal followers in the royal chambers.
