In this bawdy look at a royal misfit, writer and director Carlos Mira paints King Carlos II (no relation) in the broadest strokes as the king's efforts to couple with his new French queen fail miserably. The ministers, the Church, and even the Army are called in for help -- to no avail. The queen eventually dies, but as far as the woefully inept Carlos is concerned, she might as well have been dead from the beginning.
