Michelle has had her share of flops at the box workplace (Babylon A.D., The Touch), however The Lady is not one in all them. In reality, I think this Luc Besson movie is one amongst the simplest the Ipoh-born lass has exhausted her entire career.
The Lady is ultimately an epic love story. But what’s Luc Besson without his signature action scene, so right at the beginning of the movie is that the graphic assassination of Suu Kyi’s father, General Aung San, and members of his cabinet.
Fast forward to the long run and Suu Kyi is currently married to Englishman and academician Dr. Michael Aris. The couple live in London with their sons, Alexander and Kim.
Life is nice until Suu Kyi gets word that her mother is ill in Burma. Without hesitation, she returns to her home country within the midst of a student uprising. Whereas at the hospital caring for her mother, she witnesses first hand the atrocities of the military government led by a ruthless and superstitious leader.
After being persuaded by the academias, Suu Kyi begins her long however peaceful battle for freedom and democracy.
Although the movie is concerning the humanitarian, it is told in her husband’s perspective through vivid flashbacks as he comes to term with news of his terminally ill scenario.
The movie is partly disappointing because it will not give you the complete account of what Suu Kyi went through, but as you watch The Woman you quickly perceive that this can be Michael Aris’ story of what he knew of what went on in Burma and along with his wife.
However all is quickly forgiven as Besson will show you the key moments like when Suu Kyi faced a line of army personnel with their guns drawn or when she asked her husband if she ought to come to London to worry for him while he undergoes chemotherapy or the heart wrenching feeling you get after you see her curled up in a very ball sobbing once hearing her husband has died. For that split moment you return to realize how much this girl has sacrificed and you surprise where will she get the strength to carry on.
It isn’t typically that I’ll realize myself actually engrossed in an exceedingly movie like I did with The Woman. And it isn’t typically that I would enjoy a talkie drama, but this is often the exception to the rule and I have to say that this is often one movie that is value catching.
You don’t need to be inquisitive about politics or history to love and understand this movie. You don’t even have to understand the present developments there to understand it. What you would like is to love smart movies, and also the Girl is a sensible movie and one that’s value two hours of your time.
