The story behind that picture: "The Lady"

By: Thorsten Overgaard

 

Yesterday I went to the premiere of The Lady in Singapore, a Luc Besson movie starring Michelle Yeoh as the Burma freedom fighter Aung San Suu Kyi.

  Trailer - The Lady
   

The American reviews seem to be slightly dissatisfied with the fact that Luc Beesson (The Fifth Element) has made a movie without more than a few explosions, and it is a movie building up slowly to tell the story of human rights violations and supression of speech in Burma.

Told with beautiful cinematography made with a stealth pocket camera by Luc Bresson on a visit to Burma and on the location in Thailand next to the Burma border where they had created a precise replica of the house of Aung San Suu Kyi based on Google satelite maps!

The movie is a good introduction to - and summary of - the Burma situation. The movie premiers in the US and around the world in April-May but you may have a look at the trailer on iTunes and read a review from yesterday on the MANIA movie blog.

 

 

 


Catherine Kubillus was at the premiere and you can read her review on her movie blog MANIA here: "THE LADY – From Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, via Memoirs of a Geisha to Burma for Luc Besson"

That was today's report from Singapore. More to come from Singapore and Nepal in the coming weeks!
