The Legend of Suriyothai

This epic (in every sense of the word) historical drama comes to us from Thailand. The film attempts to relate the 16th-Century saga of Queen Suriyothai, who married a prince, made a lot of sacrifices for her country and eventually took up arms against the nasty Burmese army. The film skips characters, plotlines and decades in the blink of an eye, making it hard to get a firm grip on. Despite the length and complexity of its narrative, Suriyothai still feels like it needs another couple hours to fully expound on its subject. Even so, there's enough coup-plotting, back-stabbing and palace intrigue to satisfy lovers of lavish costume dramas. 142 minutes
