Critic Reviews for The King

All Critics (3) | Top Critics (3)

An admiring but restrained documentary about Darko Kralj, a Paralympic shot-putter from Croatia.

November 22, 2012 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

Beautifully shot, the film is unapologetically a crowd-pleaser whose gentleness of tone flows from its subject.

Producer-director Dejan Acimovic tells Kralj's inspiring story in a series of loosely organized snapshots that add up to a strong, absorbing whole.
