Writer Scott Pewenofkit Jr. completely got what I was going for and more. A truly thoughtful, insightful piece. Thank you, Scott.

Movie King of Hearts / Review

THIS FILM IS DEFINITELY ONE OF THE FINEST EVER MADE~ IF YOU CAN GET A COPY THIS IS A MUST WATCH

DVD Synopsis and information:
There is madness, drama and humor to be found in each scene of this amazing foreign film. Bumbling Scottish Private Plumpick (Alan Bates) is an ornithologist that is mistaken for an explosives expert and sent to a village in the beautiful French countryside during World War I on a suicide mission to detonate explosives set by the retreating German army. The village, soon to be blown sky-high, has been abandoned by its inhabitants – and replaced with escapees from the local insane asylum. Now with the mentally challenged running the town, Plumpick is crowned King! Alas, his new title brings him his first horrible decision: to carry out his deadly mission or join the ranks of the blissfully ignorant who know nothing about war. King Of Hearts is subtle, visually striking and, in short, the “ultimate display of madness” (Life)! King Of Hearts is a comedy that cleverly satirizes the absurdity of war. This is a marvelous film that deals with the worst of man’s horrors. war, in a strange, unique and humorous style.

King Of Hearts 1966 DVD is a fantastic film and a great dramatic exploration of Alan Bates talent. This is a truly classic foreign film that can be enjoyed again and again. Bates is simply terrific.
