Thoroughly evocative and compelling
This is one of the best films I have seen in a long time. It was highly entertaining, emotionally evoking and educational. I had known very little on the situation in Bhurma, and felt the summaries I read prior to visiting the cinema to see this film did not do justice to this cinematic gem. I came away from the screening determined to learn more and do what small part I could to right the wrongs portrayed in The Lady. The setting was wonderful, and I felt the cast played their parts marvellously. Many write ups of the film have criticised the length, however I do not think the story could have developed to give one a reasonable overview of the situation with a shorter script. It would be unnecessary to follow each of the characters’ developments in the film, particularly given the length of time in question.
I would recommend this film to anyone as essential viewing, whether or not you have an interest in political affairs or not. The politics in The Lady is so simply set out and self- explanatory that anyone would understand the issues at hand.
A story that must be told and Michelle Yeoh is terrific
With such a fascinating subject matter this movie would have been an interesting watch no matter who directed it but I think Luc Besson did a good job showing he is more than just an action thriller director. Of course there are some violent parts showing the brutality of the Military that are in your face and exciting as expected. He handled the private woman and her personal sacrifice and bravery in a tasteful manner.
Michelle Yeoh does a brilliant job. It’s a really good fit for her. She is good in both the intimate moments dealing with her family and in her dignified public persona. She deserves an acting nomination for her work. David Thewlis is well cast as a disheveled looking professor type.
The subtitles are a major part of the movie with lots of dialog in Burmese. But it’s still easy to follow the plot which doesn’t jump around too much and is well laid out. It deserves a place among the better political true life movies. While not as dramatic or gut wrenching as “Cry Freedom” or “the Killing Fields”, it still delivers a powerful message. Those interested can also watch “Beyond Rangoon” with Patricia Arquette which is a more adventure style portrayal of the events in Burma.
Wish the movie could have shown more recent events including her recent release. Reminds us there is still a long way to go in Burma.
Touching and a must watch.
