影片讲述了都灵王子Amadeo van Savoy的故事,他曾做过2年时间西班牙国王。在Amadeo王位还未坐稳前,他的心腹,Prim将军被害身亡,这让他失去了依靠。1871年的西班牙被混乱的管理与财务危机闹的民不聊生。

此片是资深制片人Luis Miñarro的剧情片导演处女作。片中Amadeo国王为了逃避孤独与沮丧,企图逃避现实、不与人交往。王宫外动乱不堪,而国王却和仆人们忙于享乐,夜夜笙箫。影片故事复杂,是一部采取音乐剧形式的历史类电影,片中有法国香颂配乐,还涉及了恍惚的同性恋情节。在这部布景精美的作品中,充满了艺术与文学的点缀引用,诗人波德莱尔、画家卢西恩·佛洛伊德与卡拉瓦乔的作品均有显现。

At first sight, Falling Star presents itself as a historic film about the brief rule of Amadeo van Savoy, a prince from Turin who was king of Spain for two years. His mainstay, the powerful General Prim, was murdered before Amadeo was properly installed and then he had no one to fall back on; Spain in 1871 was already plagued by administrative and financial crises.

In this feature debut by Luis Miñarro, who is so far best known as a producer, we can feel the (contemporary) crisis as a source of inspiration and resistance, albeit in an unusual way. The king withdraws into himself in order to escape from his loneliness and frustrations. Things aren’t safe outside the palace, and within its walls Amadeo and his servants succumb to playful adventures which focus on love and pleasure, food and drink, beauty and melancholy. And in that labyrinthine story it is soon no longer strange that the historic film adopts the form of a musical, with French chansons or dreamy homoerotic melodrama.

The beautiful tableaux are filled with casual references to art and literature, from Baudelaire to Lucian Freud and Caravaggio. Amadeo is played with intensity and elusiveness by Alex Brendemühl, colourfully and radiantly filmed by Jimmy Gimferrer, cameraman for Albert Serra, among others.
