When I was about 12 I went to see the film The King and I. I think I must have fallen in love with Deborah Kerr because I went to see it six times! Tonight whilst I was ironing and cooking for tomorrow I watched Anna and The King on DVD. I know that I've had the opportunity to watch it before when on flights but I never have. What a film! I was mesmerised by the costumes, the scenery, by the acting, by the story and, in fact, by just about everything. And when it ended I had a slightly damp handkerchief. If you haven't already done so then might I suggest that you watch it.
Quotes:King Mongkut to Anna: When a woman who has much to say says nothing, her silence can be deafening.King Chulalongkorn (King Mongkut's son) at the end of the film: It is always surprising how small a part of life is taken up by meaningful moments. Most often they are over before they start although they cast a light on the future and make the person who originated them unforgettable. Anna had shined such a light on Siam.
