The film One Nation, One King / Un Peuple et son Roi (directed by Pierre Schoeller) opened the French Film Festival on May 8 in Bucharest, in the presence of the director. The next day, Schoeller met with the audience in Cluj.
One Nation One King presents the intertwining fates of the historical figures, the men and the women of the 1789 French revolution. Their place of meeting is a newly formed National Assembly, where they have to decide what will be the fate of King Louis XVI and how to build the Republic... Freedom has a history!
