This film's great merit is its incredibly inspirational subject, a later-life biography of the luminous, internationally acclaimed democracy and peoples' rights activist, and Noble Peace Prize laureate, Aung San Suu Kyi.
Like much of the world, I am a long-time admirer of Aung San Suu Kyi. I became familiar with this incredibly inspirational woman from just reading news articles about her in THE WASHINGTON POST. This film admirably fleshes out these biographical details, into an extremely compelling story about her late-life activist endeavors on behalf of the "Burmese" people, a role she did not seek. But she accepted this role, with unbelievable self-sacrifice on the part of herself and of her loving family.
Aung San Suu Kyi's petite physical attractiveness and captivating yet disarming personal presence, suitably complements her humanistic character. The actress Michelle Yeoh is something of an Aung San Suu Kyi look-alike, and is a perfect choice...
Burma’s political movement is a natural result against high pressure military government which disregard basic human rights and kill people like animals.
The special part of this political movement is Aung San Suu Kyi who after receive well education and live England for many years can lead people in Burma to truly know what is democracy by using her authority as the daughter of country independent father Aung San. And she did it and make most people in Burma know and trust democracy which is also the will of his father. This is a really impressive democracy movement and Aung San Suu Kyi’s non-violent political movement call makes it even more convincing.
The moving part of this film is beautifully depicting a female political leader inner motion, which is absolutely special since political leader is generally male and usually willing to scarify his family to his political ambition. However, as a mother and wife, it is not that easy to sustain...
What an incredible story to be relived on screen! Michelle Yeoh projects Aung San Suu Kyi in a beautiful way. Her poised but intense portrayal as well as her classic looks reveals so much about this amazing human being. Yeoh moves and waves in a much like manner and have us imagine how Aung San's strength and determination develops. Aung San's life is one to be celebrated, supported and imitated, particularly for being a woman that cries outloud against the crimes of her fellow countrymen. She carries such virtues and follow the example of courage of M. Gandhi. Michael Aris played outstandingly by David Thewlis who touches our hearts as a man of endless loyalty and support for his wife defending causes. It is a relishing love story as much as a story about the human spirit.
