Kings & Queen
Expertly mixing comedy, tragedy and melodrama, Kings and Queen tells the story of two former lovers who find their lives linked once again, inexplicably. Nora (Emmanuelle Devos) is a 35 year-old art gallery director and single mother who has been unlucky in love until now when she meets a successful businessman. When a crisis occurs, Nora must track down her ex-husband, IsmaÃ«l (Mathieu Amalric), a disheveled neurotic musician who has descended into a comic nightmare and is mistakenly committed to a mental hospital under the control of a steely clinical psychiatrist (Catherine Deneuve). As their worlds collide, the stage is set for a truly unforgettable ending.
Internationally acclaimed director Arnauld Desplechin (Esther Kahn, My Sex Life...) presents an exhilarating new film that is one of the best reviewed movies of the year.
