The King's Speech tells the story of the man who became King George VI, the father of Queen Elizabeth II. After his brother abdicates, George ('Bertie') reluctantly assumes the throne. Plagued by a dreaded stutter and considered unfit to be king, Bertie engages the help of an unorthodox speech therapist named Lionel Logue. Through a set of unexpected techniques, and as a result of an unlikely friendship, Bertie is able to find his voice and boldly lead the country into war.

The King’s Speech - Die Rede des Königs
  • a.k.a. The King's Speech - Die Rede des Königs

Es ist ein persönliches Drama auf großer Bühne, kraft des neuen Massenmediums Radio zig tausendfach verstärkt: Dies muss Albert, Duke of York und Sohn des englischen Regenten King George V., auf peinlich-demütigende Weise erleben, als er im Jahre 1925 im Wembley Stadium eine Eröffnungsrede halten muss – denn er ist Stotterer. Und doch wird er 14 Jahre später The King’s Speech halten, als er vors Mikrofon tritt, um den Mitbürgern des Englischen Empires mitzuteilen, dass England Deutschland den Krieg erklärt. Zu diesem Zeitpunkt ist aus Bertie, wie er im Kreise seiner Familie gerufen wird, King George VI. geworden, nachdem sein Vater verstorben ist und sein älterer Bruder David abdankte, um eine bürgerliche Amerikanerin zu heiraten. Bis er für The King’s Speech allerdings bereit ist, muss der König durch das Fegefeuer einer ganz besonderen Sprachtherapie gehen...

Le Discours d'un Roi

D’après l’histoire vraie et méconnue du père de l’actuelle Reine Elisabeth, qui va devenir, contraint et forcé, le Roi George VI (Colin Firth), suite à l’abdication de son frère Edouard VIII (Guy Pearce). D’apparence fragile, incapable de s’exprimer en public, considéré par certains comme inapte à la fonction, George VI tentera de surmonter son handicap grâce au soutien indéfectible de sa femme (Helena Bonham Carter) et d’affronter ses peurs avec l’aide d’un thérapeute du langage (Geoffrey Rush) aux méthodes peu conventionnelles. Il devra vaincre son bégaiement pour assumer pleinement son rôle, et faire de son empire le premier rempart contre l’Allemagne nazie.

Italy Italian (Italiano)

Il discorso del re

Duca di York e secondogenito di re Giorgio V, Bertie è afflitto dall'infanzia da una grave forma di balbuzie che gli aliena la considerazione del padre, il favore della corte e l'affetto del popolo inglese. Figlio di un padre anaffettivo e padre affettuoso di Elisabetta (futura Elisabetta II) e Margaret, Bertie è costretto suo malgrado a parlare in pubblico e dentro i microfoni della radio. Sostituito il corpo con la viva voce, il Duca di York deve rieducare la balbuzie, buttare fuori le parole e trovare una voce. Lo soccorrono la devozione di Lady Lyon, sua premurosa consorte, e le tecniche poco convenzionali di Lionel Logue, logopedista di origine australiana. Tra spasmi, rilassamenti muscolari, tempi di uscita e articolazioni più o meno perfette, Bertie scalzerà il fratello “regneggiante”, salirà al trono col nome di Giorgio VI e troverà la corretta fonazione dentro il suo discorso più bello. Quello che ispirerà la sua nazione guidandola contro la Germania nazista.
