Tony (Emmanuelle Bercot) is admitted 
to a rehabilitation centre following a serious skiing accident; bedridden and under constant supervision she reflects on her tumultuous ten years with Giorgio (Vincent Cassel), an obsessional, mutually destructive relationship that has left her in an emotionally brittle condition.

Through extended flashbacks we observe key moments in their shared history, from the first blush of romance and lust to marriage and children, and the eventual toxic fallout of infidelity,repeated breakups and constant internecine squabbling. From her convalescent bed, Tony ponders her connection to Giorgio, an undeniable bond that held them together no matter how much harm they caused each other.

With a pair of astonishingly committed performances from Bercot and Cassel, Mon Roi, the fourth feature from French actress turned director Maïwenn (Polisse), is a rigorous, emotionally draining delineation of an explosive relationship.
