Albert Serra's new film, 'The Death of Louis XIV', is an adaptation of Duc de Saint-Simon’s memoirs, starring 1960s-era Truffaut and Godard-regular Jean-Pierre Léaud in the titular role. With his costume, hair and poses, the cult actor fully embodies the last few days of the longest serving king of France, who, during his seventy two years in power, changed the face of the monarchy and the nation. Léaud brings more than a little wit to the drama, while Serra's studied camerawork hones in on the minutiae of the monarch's daily routine and the resplendent beauty of his opulent life. ★★★★★ "Léaud gives the performance of his career in this powerful, intimate and moving account of the French king’s final days” – Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian ★★★★★ “Léaud’s finely nuanced performance is miraculous” – David Jenkins, Little White Lies "Surely the most beautiful film at Cannes 2016" - Jonathan Romney, Sight & Sound
