THE BAREFOOT EMPEROR

by Jessica Woodworth & Peter Brosens


with Peter Van Den Begin, Geraldine Chaplin, Udo Kier, Lucie Debay, Bruno Georis, Titus De Voogdt


Belgium - The Netherlands - Croatia - Bulgaria · 2019 · 1h 38min


Nicolas III, King of the Belgians, suffers a gunshot wound to the ear during an unfortunate incident in Sarajevo. He wakes up in a sanatorium on a Croatian island that once was Tito’s renowned summer residence. The King’s entourage tries in vain to protect him from the news that the recent implosion of their kingdom has sparked the collapse of the European Union.


The fragile King demands to return home at once, but instead, he is condemned to a strict regime of rest and rehabilitation by the authoritarian sanatorium director, Dr. Otto Kroll. A delegation from Vienna arrives headed by the distinguished Dr. Ilse von Stroheim, the architect of a nationalist Nova Europa. She bears the thunderous news that the last King of the Belgians will become the first Emperor of Europe.


The King, fed up with others determining his destiny, decides to take matters into his own hands.
