One of the most lugubrious movie premises of recent years -- watch King Louis XIV, the Sun King, die slowly, in one dark room, over nearly two hours of screen time -- is here transformed into startling and fresh entertainment.

Serra's sad, stately, haunting addition to the slow-cinema genre doubles up as both an intimate study of the Sun King's death and a requiem for Europe's fading arthouse scene.

[Léaud,] remembered by film lovers as the young prince of the Nouvelle Vague, certainly gets you thinking about mortality. Story-wise, though, there's little here for viewers not big on French history.
