I enjoyed this movie very much! Went through a whole range of emotions while watching it, and my husband enjoyed it, as well.

A four star movie! The sets, customes, scenery, and attention to every detail regarding the time period is perfect. Very captivating and touching story. Jodie Foster and Chow Yun-Fat have great "chemistry". The casting deptartment were above excellent in choosing the actors who play in this movie. This movie, in my opinion, would be good for "family night".

I do like this version because of the great acting of Jodie Foster. It is a typical tear-jerker and it is a little intense at times.
Parents should be aware that there are some pretty graphic scenes, such as a man breaking his leg by jumping out a window. Samarai type violence is seen as well, and a young girl dies (due to illness).
You do not see the king die in this version (as he did in real life, and in the classic Rogers and Hammerstein version) but you get the impression that he dies shortly after.
