THE KING OF THE WHOLE WORLD

  • | 2021

Directed by Carlos Saura

The new collaboration between the two masters Saura & Storaro

Manuel, a famous stage director, is preparing his next show, a musical about making a musical show. He seeks the help of Sara, a renowned choreographer and ex-wife, to help him cast and direct. During the casting process, the young dancer Ines will appear as the new rising star. She will bring into the story her father, a dubious character who has dangerous dealings with the local mob. As the preparation of the show evolves, the desire to win will push the dancers to excel their performances, which will bring out passion and tension between them. Where powerful Mexican music sets the tone (Lila Downs, Carlos Rivera, Fela Dominguez), a play will emerge in which tragedy, fiction and reality intertwine.
