Artisokka 12: The Lady

2 h 25 min  |  -  |  Release Date: 30.3.2012

Luc Besson is back in the director's chair with his tribute to the real life pro-democracy activist Aung San Suu Kyi, who is played by Michelle Yeoh at her award-worthy best. Besson finds great strength and beauty concealed beneath the iron rule of the totalitarian military that has terrorized Burma since the death of Aung San Suu Kyi's democracy supporting father in 1947. Thanks to an Oscar worthy performance by Yeoh and a stark realism lensed ever so gracefully by Besson's long time cinematographer, Thierry Arbogast, The Lady makes for a powerful biopic.
