The King's Whore 1990

description written by member DameAlys:

The head of a kingdom in late 18-century Italy takes a fancy to his chamberlain's wife, and demands she become his mistress. She is forced to submit, but at a price that destroys them both. This unorthodox exploration of the themes of identity, power, and love proved too subtle, and perhaps too uncomfortably subversive of politically correct intellectual fashions, to find an audience, following its debut at Cannes, where reviewers failed to appreciate its complex erotic appeal. Difficult to find now, it benefits from repeated viewings, partly because of editing almost too taut for clarity, but mainly because it treats serious themes both compassionately and philosophically--perhaps too much so, for viewers in our cynical, anti-intellectual age. With an excellent cast, all in top form.
