Mon Roi (My King)

French actor-director Maïwenn (Polisse) teams up with Vincent Cassel and Emmanuelle Bercot in this modern tale of an intricate and passionate bourgeois romance, for which Bercot was awarded Best Actress at Cannes 2015.

"Tony (Bercot) is admitted to a rehabilitation center after a serious ski accident. Dependent on the medical staff and pain relievers, she takes time to look back on a turbulent relationship that she experienced with Georgio (Cassel). 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…" (Cannes Film Festival)
