My King (Mon Roi)

Tony (Emmanuelle Bercot) is admitted to a rehabilitation center after a serious skiing accident. Dependent on the medical staff and pain relievers, she takes time to look back on a turbulent relationship that she experienced with Georgio (Vincent Cassell).

Why did they love each other? Who is this man that she loved so deeply? How did she allow herself to submit to this suffocating and destructive passion?

For Tony, a difficult process of healing is in front of her, physical work which may finally set her free.

"My King" brims with intimate details, adding to a sense of authenticity that is rarely found in films."

Alan Zilberman, Washington Post

"The central couple's ups and downs may grow tiresome, but the characters, powerfully realized by Emmanuelle Bercot and an especially riveting Vincent Cassel, never do."

Sheri Linden, Los Angeles Times

"Bercot and Cassel deliver phenomenal performances in this erotic bonfire of a movie. Maïwenn doesn't want to warm our heart, she wants to rip into it."

Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
