My King Review - AVClub

AVClub: A rocky marriage of believable performances and groan-inducing pop psychology, My King is the sort of movie where its flaws cancel out some of its virtues—a drama about an attraction between incompatible opposites that seems to be fighting itself all the way to the end credits. The opposites in question are Tony (Emmanuelle Bercot, who won Best Actress at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival for the role) and Georgio (Vincent Cassel). They meet on the dance floor of a nightclub; she’s a lawyer and he’s an impetuous restaurateur, which all but fates them to eventually throw accusations and broken dishware at each other. The decade-spanning story of their crappy codependent relationship is told in flashback, as Tony recuperates from a broken leg at a beachside clinic, learning (literally) to walk on her own again.

The story is too old to be commented.
