Film Details

The King of Escape

Le Roi De L'Évasion
France | 2009 | Alain Guiraudie

The King of Escape

The film that Alain Guiraudie made before Stranger by the Lake (see 5/1 & 4) was “the revelation of Lincoln Center’s recent Guiraudie retrospective,” according to the Anthology Film Archives. (Their April-June program book also calls it “one of the greatest films in recent memory.”) The King of Escape is an outlandish sex farce in which an obese, gay, rural tractor salesman becomes the unlikely love object of his boss’s teenage daughter. They run away together, setting off a chain of bizarre events. “Guiraudie’s most purely enjoyable film.” –Film Comment.

93 min. Subtitles. No one under 18 admitted! Cleveland premiere. Print courtesy of Institut Français, Paris. Special thanks to Florence Almozini, Cultural Services of the French Embassy, NY, and Laurence Geannopulos, French Consulate, Chicago.
