User review:

At the beginning of the 20th century, the hard-governed Kingdom of Pannonia was on the verge of revolt. An attack is preparing against the young king of 12 years old, a boy far too young for the charge which he has just inherited from his terrible father, murdered dead. Without a parent, having only a benevolent governess as a friend, the young boy wastes away without the Court’s intriguers being concerned about it… Freely adapted from a novel by the writer-historian of Alsatian origin André Lichtenberger, The Little Kingremained for a long time untraceable, for legal reasons it seems. The film takes place in two parts, the first dark part with a rather heavy atmosphere, marked by the confinement of the young boy (even his bed looks like a cage). This part is the most successful; fortunately, it is the longest. The second part, brighter and even joyful, is much less remarkable. She uses fairly conventional methods to become a dreadful teardrop. Julien Duvivier finds Robert Lynen, the young actor with whom he had filmed his second version of Poil de Carotte the previous year. He does a great job, expressing well the mixture of innocence and fatalism that characterizes his character (we can measure the difference when he meets a girl who has a really terrible game).The Little King is a film that deserves to be discovered.

    Just adding my voice to request for reup, if possible. Such a rare, vintage movie deserves as much preservation as possible, imo.

    Any list of films starring French boy star and later war hero Robert Lynen (1920 – 1944) should not ignore his staggeringly excellent performance in his debut film, Julien Duvivier’s “POIL DE CAROTTE”, in which Robert became a star overnight when the film was released in France in 1932 when he was 12.

    Unfortunately, although a huge hit in France, it was refused a certificate and rejected by the British Board of Film Censors at the time, effectively banning it from being shown in British cinemas, probably because of Robert’s nude scene in the film and because they were worried that if children were able to see the scene where Robert’s character tries to commit suicide by hanging himself in a barn, they may copy what they had seen him do on the screen with tragic results. The film is available on a French DVD without English sub-titles and an American Criterion DVD with English sub-titles.

    When World War Two broke out and the Germans invaded France, Robert joined the French Resistance and was eventually caught by the Gestapo and executed along with fourteen of his comrades. He was a very brave man!
