KING OF HEARTS
November 16 @ 19:30 - 22:00
Classic Cinema Club – Ealing presents: KING OF HEARTS at Ealing Town Hall (16 NOV 19:30):
A Scottish soldier is sent to defuse a bomb in an evacuated French village, where the patients of the local mental asylum have taken over the town. They enjoy their freedom by dressing up and frolicking in the streets and main square, as he tries in vain to lead them to safety, in a surreal and whimsical allegory about the madness of war. With a cast featuring great stars and character actors of French cinema, it initially flopped in its home nation, but years later became a cult comedy abroad.
In French and German with English subtitles, and in English
Director Philippe de Broca
Starring Alan Bates, Genevieve Bujold, Pierre Brasseur, Jean-Claude Brialy, Micheline Presle, Michel Serrault, Adolfo Celi.
