Dream of Romance: Close-Up on Alain Guiraudie’s "The King of Escape"

  • MUBI
Close-Up is a column that spotlights films now playing on Mubi. Alain Guiraudie's The King of Escape (2009) is showing from February 12 - March 14, 2017 in the United Kingdom as part of the special The Rom Com Variations.Few contemporary filmmakers make movies as defiantly uncategorizable as French director Alain Guiraudie’s. Last year’s Staying Vertical, his first film to compete in the Cannes competition slate, was a kind of surreal pastoral, a freewheeling yet keenly structured rumination on writer's block, provincialism and familial responsibility. Stranger by the Lake, the film that first garnered Guiraudie some (semi-)mainstream success in 2013, is a Hitchcockian thriller of sorts, an intoxicating eros-thanatos dance set in its eponymous, sun-dappled locale. If those descriptions are rather non-committal, that's because pinning down Guiraudie’s films to specifics—of genre, story, or otherwise—is a tricky affair; the only constant is his idiosyncratic, iconoclastic sensibility.

Top 100 Most Anticipated Foreign Films of 2015: #89. Maiwenn’s Mon roi

Mon roi

Director: Maiwenn // Writers: Etienne Comar, Maiwenn

Actress turned director Maiwenn’s last stint behind the camera won her the Jury Prize at Cannes 2011 with the moving dramatic ensemble, Polisse. Formerly titled “Rien Ne Sert De Courir”, her latest, Mon roi stars Vincent Cassel and Emmanuelle Bercot, a woman who is more well known as a director (On My Way; Backstage) than an actress, and on top of its pedigree, sounds like an intriguing followup from the impressive Maiwenn. The film, shot back in March, recounts, over the course of several years, the passionate and intricate love story of a couple with a child.

Cast: Vincent Cassel, Emmanuelle Bercot, Ludovic Berthillot

Producers: France 2 Cinema, Les Productions du Tresor’s Alain Attal (Blood Ties), Studiocanal.

U.S. Distributor: Rights Available.

Release Date: Pegged with an October release in France, with her last film playing in the main competition and winning a major award,

The King of Escape Is a Sublime Exploration of Complex Sexuality

The King of Escape Is a Sublime Exploration of Complex Sexuality
Weaving numerous influences into a rich emotional tapestry, Alain Guiraudie's The King of Escape skillfully absorbs and updates its assertive cinematic forebears.

Part Pierrot Le Fou, part Mauvais Sang, it features an expressionistic narrative punctuated with stylized proclamations on sex, death, and other French obsessions. Yet The King of Escape maintains an emotionally resonant affect, its characters never seeming less than lifelike.

Armand (Ludovic Berthillot) and Curly (Hafsia Herzi) are a middle-age gay man and teenage girl who, counter to expectations, fall in love and run off together after Armand rescues Curly from a potential rape. Guiraudie, who followed this 2009 picture with the superb Stranger by the Lake, exhibits a fas...
