The Death of Louis XIV

Based on extensive medical records and the memoirs of the Duke of Saint-Simon, this "wry neoclassical chamber drama" attempts to recreate the final days of King Louis XIV. Wounded while on a hunting trip in 1715, the dying king is surrounded by doctors and counselors who mob his bedside trying to figure out what will happen in the impending power vacuum. Noted French new wave icon Jean-Pierre Léaud (The 400 Blows) stars as Louis XIV. In French with English subtitles. 115 minutes Unrated.
