Rois et Reine (Kings and Queen) Reviews

Desplechin's big, bold, iconoclastic feature Rois et Reine is a disconcerting film that can turn your head at the oddest moments.

Funny, absurd, often mocking itself and always quoting cultural history.

While these characters' lives are melodramatic, individual scenes burst with kinetic energy from fast editing and an script that deftly underscores the destructive nature of male-female relationships.

There's a looseness to the camera work and storytelling that's appealingly breezy: This film feels, for better or worse, like real life.

Kings and Queen, full of passion and humor, madness and grief, is close to a masterpiece.

Kings and Queen is at times compelling, at times devastating, and at times long-winded.

It's a puzzle of a film, but not the kind that intimidates you with inscrutability so much as one that beckons you into its antic eccentricity.

[Desplechin] gives these characters the time to develop, to display their nuances, to establish their relationships with each other, to talk out their destinies.

The film is delectable and keeps you eager to see what's served next, but also is ridiculously rich, overly long and difficult to digest. Still, it's a feast you won't want to miss.

A richly observed study of the sticky complexities of family dynamics.

Roger Ebert

The movie, directed by Arnaud Desplechin and written by him with Roger Bohbot, begins as such a straightforward portrait of ordinary life that it's unsettling to find layer after layer of reality peeled away.

Kings and Queen is a marvelously textured and civilized study of two tormented souls finding redemption not in each other, but in themselves and in other people.

Contemporary and specific ... but the melodramas also play out on a universal plane, like the lives of the gods.

By tempering the mania and offsetting the edginess of the deeply imperfect characters in this ambitiously free-form film, Desplechin offers that most old-form of balms -- compassion.

Devos, as Nora, does much to hold it all together with a layered performance. Almaric has powerful moments as well, notably in a climactic rambling monologue about life he delivers to the boy.
