Watch My King - Alternative Versions.
'Mon Roi' (the film has no international title yet,) is the 4th film by
Maïwenn (Le Besco). For years she was known as the girlfriend/wife of
Luc Besson. The fact that they had a child when she was hardly 17 years
old was spread out over many a tabloid. After her child acting years
and break-up with Besson she turned away from acting for some time
before returning with a vengeance in the director's chair. As her last
2 films were part of the main selection of the prestigious Cannes Film
Festival -which in both cases won a prize- she has made quite a name
for herself (in recent years she usually drops her last name Le Besco).
Her three previous films feature a protagonist using (or hiding
behind?) a camera. A documentary camera for the semi- autobiographical
'Pardonnez-moi' (2006) (Forgive Me) and 'Le bal des actrices' (2009)
(All About Actresses), a photo camera for 'Polisse' (2011) (Prix du
jury). No hiding in this film though, emotions are running amok. The
film starts with a skiing accident of the main character Tony (short
for Marie-Antoinette) played by Emmanuelle Bercot. It's not exactly
clear if it really was an accident or a form of deliberate self
harming. A bit in the vein of the famous opening scene of 'Lawrence of
Arabia' where it's not exactly clear if the main character had an
accident or was committing suicide.
After this opening the movie switches between flashbacks of the meeting
and falling in love of Tony and Georgio ( a truly fantastic Vincent
Cassel) and scenes of Tony in a rehabilitation center, where her knee
injury is being treated. We see Tony being knocked of her socks by the
extreme charm and sharp wit of Georgio. There's a nice scene were
Georgio is getting rid of Tony's sexual insecurity, caused by an
insulting remark of a former boyfriend towards the end of a previous
relationship, in no time with a few casual funny comments.
The film's beginning suggests that the good times won't go on forever.
At certain stages of the film a former girlfriend shows up, gradually
showing the destructive force Georgio has on women. Whatever happens
-being caught in bed with another woman, drug use, financial
difficulties- Georgio always charms his way out of it. When Tony does
react it's usually in front of their friends through extreme emotional
outbursts which only seems to lead to more sympathy towards Georgio.
And even though she knows their relationship is not healthy she somehow
cannot get herself to truly leave Georgio. No wonder 'Rien ne sert de
courir' ('No use in running away') happened to be the working title.
Juxtaposing the rise and fall of a relationship with the physical
rehabilitation is slowly but truly suggesting the physical injuries
sustained are a desperate cry-out caused by the emotional stress of the
marriage. Will Tony ever be able to once and for all get out from under
the spell of Georgio?
Emmanuelle Bercot had quite the festival, she directed to opening film
'La tête haute' (Standing Tall) and won the best acting prize. It would
have been nice if she could have shared it with Cassel as he perhaps
delivers the finest performance of his career to date. The way he keeps
his character remain charming despite his often despicable actions make
the unlikely indecision of the Tony character all the more believable.
Only the scenes featuring Tony as a lawyer do not have enough
credibility. Please visit my site 'bttcinema.com'.
