The Queen Of Versailles (2012)

The Queen Of Versailles (2012)
Directed by: Lauren Greenfield
Country: USA

Summary: A documentary that follows a billionaire couple as they begin construction on a mansion inspired by Versailles.
Review: Opulence and ostentation is what this peculiar documentary has to show. It tells how the magnate of time-sharing business start to build a house inspired on Versailles Palace to please his capricious wife. It’s almost surreal when you think about the thirty bathrooms on that house. Never boring, it shows the deplorable reality for those who don’t know what to do with so much money and the complete insensitivity and slouch when the things go wrong. It can be seen as a tragic-comic piece of live cinema and believe me, it worth the peek.
Relevant awards: Directing (Sundance).
