MOVIE REVIEW:Anna and the King


*** This review may contain spoilers ***

The King and I was a great adaptation of the true story based on the
lead female character's diaries, and then there's more realistic
version from director Andy Tennant (Hitch). Basically, set in the
1890's, English school teacher Anna Leonowens (Jodie Foster), with her
son Louis (Harry Potter's Tom Felton), is summoned to the palace of
Siam by King Mongkut (Crouching Tiger's Chow Yun-Fat) to teach his
fifty-eight children. It takes quite a while for Anna and the King to
get to used to each other, but she wins over the royal children,
especially Princess Fa-Ying (Melissa Campbell), very easily. Throughout
the story, Anna tries to help the King get the respect of the English,
but instead a war is started, she tries to avoid a forbidden romance
being found out, and she cannot be near him when he has someone
executed. Obviously their hate is not all the way through, it is
obvious they grow stronger feelings for each other, though you never
see anything happen, you get the idea. Also starring Ling Bai as
Tuptim, Syed Alwi as The Kralahome – Prime Minister, Randall Duk Kim as
General Alak, Kay Siu Lim as Prince Chowfa, King Mongkut's Brother,
Keith Chin as Prince Chulalongkorn, Mano Maniam as Leonowens' Indian
Servant Moonshee and Geoffrey Palmer as Lord John Bradley. Foster
sports an impeccable English accent, Yun-Fat is alright at being mostly
sweet-natured with a little majestic attitude, if the film wasn't so
long and political it might be a little better, so I much prefer and
recommend The King and I. It was nominated the Oscars for Best Art
Direction-Set Decoration and Best Costume Design, and it was nominated
the Golden Globes for Best Original Score for George Fenton and Best
Original Song for "How Can I Not Love You". Okay!

Directed by Andy Tennant Anna and The King tells the true life story of
the English governess Anna Leonowens who was tutor to the children of
the King of Siam and wrote a book about her experiences at the court.
When Mrs Anna Leonowens(Jodi Foster)arrives in Siam along with her
young son Louis(Tom Felton)to become the governess to the children of
Siam's all powerful ruler King Mongkut(Chow Yun-Fat)she finds herself
at odds with his rule and the beauty and violence of the country.The
two gradually and very slowly become friends and he learns to trust
her.Things turn complicated though when she finds that both she and the
king have fallen in love with one another. Although not 100 percent
historically accurate this is much more believable than the Deborah
Kerr and Yul Brynner musical The King and I.Featuring some truly
beautiful location work and costumes this is a sweeping epic romantic
film done in the style of those from the 30's and 40's.If you want to
be transported to a world of beauty,tradition and history then this is
one to watch.
