The King’s Trial

At the time Portugal presented a strange spectacle to the rest of Europe. D. Afonso VI, son of the fortunate D. João de Bragança, was in possession of the throne and was an insane imbecile. His wife, daughter of the Duke of Nemours and cousin of Louis XIV, dared hatch a plot to oust her husband from the throne. The king’s stupidity justified the queen’s bravado. Despite being master of unusual strength and having slept with his wife for a long time, she accused him of being impotent. Marie Françoise had acquired through artfulness what Afonso had lost in anger in the kingdom. She had him imprisoned ( November 1667 ) and quickly obtained a papal bull from Rome to confirm her virginity and bless her marriage to her brother-in-law Pedro. Portugal’s submission for the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film in 1990.

FMovies Review:

Amazing movie from 1990. The ‘best’ term is as you know from a relative term: You or I may not even be on the list of someone else whom we consider to be ‘the best’. So the general rule is to declare the majority of nations. Like the best, though, for me, it can be considered the most beautiful movie ever made. I was so emotionally destroyed that I saw the entire movie three times on the internet almost in one go.

This is a few words of movie music: simple, deceptive, cool, just right. There is not a single thing wrong with that movie. It sets the 10/10 standard for every other movies in existence for me. It’s taken me multiple rewatches and a lot of hours on the wiki to understand everything.

…Damn, I need to watch these movie online again. It was so good! I haven’t found this full movie anywhere else so I uploaded it here on FMovies, so now this movie will be available online free for all.
