One Nation, One King
A young couple are swept up in the hopeful excitement of the French Revolution in Pierre Schoeller's (Versailles) period drama that premiered at Venice.
"Paris, 1789. The Bastille has been stormed and a breath of liberty blows through the streets of Paris. Françoise, a young washerwoman, and Basile, a drifter with neither name, nor family, together discover the unique exhilaration of revolution and love. With their comrades and the working-class people of Paris, they begin to realise a dream of emancipation in the newly formed assembly where they witness, with both hopes and doubts, the creation of a new political system. Within their debates and the riots on the streets hold the fate of their once sacred king and the birth of a republic. Freedom has a story." (Venice Film Festival)
