At one side, it's a educational and yet emotional approach to Burma's political framework. "You may not be thinking about politics, but politics is thinking about you". At the other, lies a compelling depiction of the psychological suffering of a woman brave enough to face it. Yeoh does a terrific work in delivering a strong and, paradoxically, delicate character. I couldn't help but drop some tears.
"The Lady's Men" is a triumph. Here Besson uses all his pop instincts to provide phenomenal blocking/staging/editing, as good as any. It all leads to a stunning shake-up of the biopic genre turned into a heartfelt family separation drama heightened by dangerous politics and the distance of half a world.
