I wasn't expecting much from this flick but since Jodie Foster is one of my favorite actress, I thought I should still check it out. First of all, I haven't seen the original movie so I couldn't compare both. Anyway, my wife loved it but I didn't really like it very much. I mean, come on! I have seen 'The Last Emperor' which was really mesmerizing and, for me, this is just a pale and romanticized ... read more

I loved this movie and I could watch it every day, I think Yun-Fat Chow is lovely and so is Jodie. I do think though, there were things in the movie that was not quite right in those days, but even so, I loved it.

The story (plot if you prefer) is well known and it may help to know it beforehand thereby leaving the viewer free to appreciate the rest of it.

Sets, costumes, soundtrack and cinematography are amongst the best you'll ever find in cinema. Simple as that. The supporting cast is very strong and they really needed to be. If I were to praise them all this review would be too long and p... read more

If I were to praise them all this review would be too long and perhaps feel somewhat gushing, but when it's good, say it's good.

Yun-Fat Chow has such a light touch that you need to see the film a number of times to appreciate his sleight of hand in the role and it becomes more appreciable considering his female counterpart. Chow needs more roles like this because he has serious talent that is wasted in action films.

The sets, the costums, everything look prettty good and Jodie Foster and Chow Yun Fat both give some decent performances but what a boring story... The whole thing was just really predictable and uninspiring, in my opinion. Ok, nowadays, Jodie Foster doesn't do anything really amazing but she used to be an amazing actress back in the days and it is quite sad to see her end up here. I mean” read more

"The remake did not work out very well, even though it had great actors in Jodie Foster and Chow Yun-Fat. So the 1946 version is better. "

The Best Period Films You MUST Watch (76 movies items)

"The film follows the story of Anna Leonowens a widow who has come to Siam with her son Louis to teach English to the royal children of Rama IV. She is a strong-willed, intelligent woman and this pleases the King, who wants to modernize his country to keep it safe from the threat of colonialism, while protecting many of the ancient traditions that give Siam its unique identity.
