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.


Critic Reviews for King of the Belgians

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (1)

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

Sep 9, 2016 | 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.

King of the Belgians is an undemanding offbeat caricature that turns up politically concise in its sayings, yet considerably stinging in its depictions.

Jul 12, 2017 | Rating: 7/10 | Full Review…

A mockumentary with a sadistic tone that has a lot more to give than flaws. [Full review in Spanish]
