    Genre: Biography, Drama, Romance
    Synopsis:  The heroic story that touched the heart of every part of the world, the love withstands all the trials to find an answer for freedom. The fight for a new reform government system, takes part of knowing the worth of sacrifice for nationalism and the love that binds the family of Aung San Suu Kyi. She was known The Lady from Rangoon Burma, the extraordinary way of fighting her advocacy to democracy for her people.


              The film is a resemblance of any people showed good deeds to their people, the life Ghandi in India. Aung San Suu Kyi (Michelle Yeoh) still remains with her own will to have change in the local governance in Burma. The story started with her life at the age of 2, when his father (Aung San) was assassinated by the military. Despite the fact that it was not included in the film of how she had ended studying in London, the points of view of knowing the challenges came after going back to her country.
              Michelle Yeoh gave justice in portraying the role of the woman who had known as the Steel Orchid, taking the credit of good performance of David Thewlis (Michael Aris) as the lovingly husband that stand at her side without feeling regrets in his life. It is remarkably a love story that is not always being seen in the modern days.
              There is no doubt that she had given the Nobel Prize in 1991, Aung San Suu Kyi is the symbol of hope and change for people. The good deeds she had shown to the world gave an inspiring act that even a good leader can’t imagine. The democracy is the starting point for her to seek reformation of their government system that it has been in decades ruling the people without hope for development. It was in 1988 that brings the unexpected overturn of her life, when her mother got stroke and she is needed to look after her. The Burmese people had seen the courage that she can lead their country, and then the rest was a history.
               She had witnessed the violence escalated when the military spray bullets to the young rally’s students on the streets. Eventually, the generally proclaims an open elections to control the situation. An opportunity for Suu Kyi to take the risk in behalf of her countrymen, it is the courageous that made her a good leader. 
    The technical pat of this film had some flaws to consider, but the manner of being aware what is going on across the country is worth to be foretold. The resistance for possible transition of the local governance to freedom for democracy is portrayed realistic. The martial law, the propaganda, violence and humanity were flashed similarly with the other nations.
              The film is out in the market, not to gain profit out of its story. But to awaken the people to know what is right for them. The heroic deeds from within will serve as the inspiration to seek justice, peace and the life of having freedom to their own homeland.
