Vincent Cassel & Emmanuelle Bercot in Full US Trailer for 'My King'
"We don't know each other." Film Movement has debuted an official US trailer for the upcoming release of Maïwenn's My King, originally titled Mon roi, a French relationship drama starring Vincent Cassel & Emmanuelle Bercot. Bercot plays Tony, a woman who wakes up in a hospital after a serious ski accident and recounts her "turbulent relationship" with a man named Georgio. The full cast includes Louis Garrel, Isild Le Besco and Chrystèle Saint Louis Augustin. This is actually a solid trailer, using music to help enhance the emotions in each scene rather than dialogue. And the film seems like a very powerful look and romance and love and the troubles that come with passion. Worth a watch even if you're unsure about this.
Tony is admitted to a rehabilitation center after a serious ski accident. Dependent on the medical staff and pain relievers, she takes time to look back on a turbulent relationship that she experienced with Georgio. Why did they love each other? Who is this man that she loved so deeply? How did she allow herself to submit to this suffocating and destructive passion? For Tony, a difficult process of healing is in front of her, physical work which may finally set her free. My King is directed by French filmmaker Maïwenn, of Pardonnez-moi, All About Actresses and Polisse previously. The script is written by Maïwenn and Etienne Comar. Film Movement will be releasing My King in select US theaters starting August 12th. Interested?

Well, it's French so it will certainly have a maturity and intelligence that an American movie of the same subject matter would surely lack. It does look a little too goofy for my tastes, but I've always held Vincent Cassel in the highest of regard. He's a very good actor and believe him up there with the likes of Tom Hardy and Matthias Schoenaerts...he was actually there before they came along...lol...I'll have to see on this one.

If for nothing else, it looks refreshing. European cinema is somehow slowburner and it's rich at that. It can be very annoying to some American viewers, for example, but it can often be very rewarding if one does not give up ...
