The King's Mistress (1990)

(aka: The King's Whore)



Reviews and Comments

"Kings derive much of their pleasure from the ingenuity of the lies people are obliged to tell them."

Well developed characters strongly portrayed by Timothy Dalton and Valeria Golino and a couple of invigorating sword fights are the only merits to this painfully slow-going costume drama. Released under two different English titles, The King's Whore and The King's Mistress.
