Plot Summary
Anna (Jodie Foster) has been employed to educate the king's (Chow Yun-Fat) 58 children. She knows very little of King Mongkut, apart from the fact that his people revere him as a god. She brings with her an East vs. West prejudice against the king, considering him to be uncivilized. She soon realizes that her views are more than matched by the rulers own preconceptions about the West and particularly this impertinent English woman.

  • Yun-Fat is magnetic and majestic, and the story, no matter that it is not entirely true, continues to fascinate.

  • Despite good performances and moments of spectacle, it seems to go on longer than the Cultural Revolution.

  • In the end you feel like you've been taken on a pleasing, professionally run tourist trip that let you enjoy the sights without ever really inhabiting the land. show more
