A novel incredibly difficult to be adopted as a motion picture. The book-club conversations are sort of a put off, and the ending should be left more ambiguous as the author suggests. Nevertheless the visual effects and set decoration has tons and tons of heart and soul in it. Should (and I think I will) watch it (again) in 3D. Otherwise, what I found emotionally attached to are: 1) Nature is beautiful, wondrous and magical, but it never meant to be your friend; 2) People prefer to hear and report the "truth", which is usually not.
Life is so grey and oftentimes there is no absolute right or wrong. An impeccable script as it tells why there is situation so convincingly right to ones but impossible to others.
This is how a possibly A-Class movie material being disasteriously turned into a C-Class melodrama which should go straight to DVD, or should just be shown as a Sunday afternoon television movie. Too little of the junta's atrocity described or it was handled like an hollywood action movie, the political struggle of Suu is under featured, way way way too much time spent on family emotions, Thewlis (played as Suu's husband) became a "comedian" of the movie. This movie should never be made now, not until after 15 or 20 years later when Suu has just regained her second life as a freed politician.
Possibly the most uninspiring movie who won Golden Lion at Venice.
