Movie Info

The King of the Belgians is on a state visit in Istanbul when his country falls apart. He must return home at once to save his kingdom. But a solar storm causes airspace and communications to shut down. No planes. No phones. With the help of a British filmmaker and a troupe of Bulgarian folk singers, the King and his entourage manage to escape over the border. Incognito. Thus begins an odyssey across the Balkans during which the King discovers the real world - and his true self.

  • Though the film doesn't dig all that deep politically, it features quite a few solid laughs ...

  • An exercise of artistic freedom, in short, culminating in an unpretentious film, sometimes fun, sometimes not so much, but certainly never seen before. [Full Review in Spanish]

    Aug 13, 2019 | Full Review…
  • The humanity of its characters and the originality of its premise make it a most refreshing watch that will go down a treat for anyone looking for something on the lighter side.

    Mar 26, 2019 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…
  • An European 'mockumentary' that doesn't meet expectations. [Full review in Spanish]

    Aug 16, 2017 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…
  • A light, somewhat diverting romp through the Balkan states, as experienced by a group of bumbling-if-ultimately-kind-hearted Belgians on the loose.

    Jul 23, 2017 | Rating: Recommended | Full Review…
  • King of the Belgians is an undemanding offbeat caricature that turns up politically concise in its sayings, yet considerably stinging in its depictions.
