This 20 minute short film comes from France and is co-written and co-directed by Jonathan Delerue and Guillaume Enard. Set in medieval times, the Knight is perched outside the castle walls, seemingly daring to be confronted. Mort-Lieu's young son (Jonas Bloquet, ELLE) is desperate to prove his valor by charging off to fight the Knight, but his father orders him to stand down.
Pascal Greggory (LA VIE EN ROSE) plays Mort-Lieu and his wife (Anne Charrier) has no sympathy for weakness, and inspires toughness in her husband ... the toughness he showed in building his kingdom, despite the bloodline challenges he faced. Beautifully filmed, the movie conveys much in a short run, and reminds us all that, in the end (if not sooner), we must face the actions of our life.
