The Rose King 1986

  • Werner Schroeter
  • March 3, 1986
  • 106 mins
  • German
  • Drama, Music
Released in English-speaking countries as The Rose King, the German Der Rosenkonig is another of director Wern Schroeter's self-indulgent studies of intense, artistically expressed human passion. The scene is a large Portuguese estate. Still-beauteous widow Magdalene Montezuma lives in empty luxury on the estate with her son. This close familial relationship is shaken up, but ultimately strengthened, by the arrival of a low-born laborer. Director Schroeter unfolds his tale with the slightly surreal logic of a midsummer daydream.
