What A History
14 August 2004 | by (Indonesia) – See all my reviews

The story is not same with what I've read about Shah M. R. Pahlevi and Princess Soraya, but this movie is interesting and a good one for showing a dramatic love story with sad ending (even though I don't understand their language at all).

This movie is great, just see the actor's facial expressions and body language I can understand what they're meant. Beside Anna Valle is beautiful (just look at her eyes and her hair) and acting very good in this TV show. So was Erol Sander, he is handsome and a good actor. The director is doing such a wonderful job directed this TV show. The dresses that Anna Valle used in this show are very good and very perfect for her (similar jewelry that she wore).

In a real life Shah M.R. Pahlevi was not a handsome man he was in fact 10-year older than Soraya, but Princess Soraya was truly a beautiful lady.
