Critic Reviews for King Is Dancing
Vividly illustrates how the young Louis used dance to project his image to the world and strengthen his hold on power during a turbulent time for the kingdom.
Whatever else is going on, The King Is Dancing is a always a treat to look at and to listen to.
The visuals are overpowering; as for the drama, it might help if you are a Francophile . . . or a costume freak. But then don't most of us fall into one of these categories?

Audience Reviews for King Is Dancing
A beautiful work that does not resort to cliches or commercialization to bring in viewers. Rarely do you see a movie about musicians, or any artist for that matter, so well done and without flaws. Le Roi Danse is officially my new favorite film!
This is without a doubt one of the most beautiful and successful historic dramas since Barry Lyndon. The music score is absolutely off the charts. The relationship between Jean Baptiste Lully (along with Rameau, THE greatest composer of the period) and Louis the Fourteenth is probed in exquisite depth. The costuming and attention to detail is worthy of anything the British have done in "genre" epics. I highly recommend this film to those "esthetes" that appreciate a well-made film about a historic subject. "Três elegant"!!!!!
