Aung San Suu Kyi, What A Lady!


The Lady,the latest feature film by Luc Besson (Subway, The Big Blue, Nikita) on Aung San Suu Kyi will be released very soon in America.

I was able to see the film in a preview in New York ( the film was released in France last october) and really liked the movie. Sentimental: yes; Biased: yes; superficial: sometimes, yes. But Michelle Yeoh is amazing and the filming (the film was shot in Thailand) is “Bessonesque”, overwhelming. Luc Besson and his wife, Virginie Silla-Besson, the producer, have put so much time and research in this epic. It really shows.

The timing is of course exhilarating with Burma opening up to the world, Hillary Clinton visiting The Lady, and all this suffering and pain coming to a radiant end.

A must.
