This film is not currently showing in cinemas.
A king overcomes his loneliness by indulging in playful adventures and carnal pleasures.
A hallucinatory look into the brief reign of the Spanish king Amadeo I of Savoy in the early 1870s. Lacking the personality of a ruler and treated with contempt by his court, Amadeo withdraws into himself and becomes a prisoner in his own palace. To escape his loneliness, he seeks escape in playful adventures and carnal pleasures. A melancholic and funny period film amplified by saturated colors, extravagant sets and costumes, and a wild soundtrack that spans a century of music.
