The original version released in Thailand was a bit over 3 hours long. Another one, 5 hours long, was released a year later on DVD. This one contains more subplots and battles than the one released in the US. See more »
It is true that the movie is long. But it has to be long or else the audience will not understand nothing. Further more the tone, style and the speed of the speech is believe to be talk by Thai people of the old days according to the historical evidences.Thailand's history (and every nations) is complex and consist of many matters.
Interesting is that the story is 90 percent real,the costume, the implied cultural and social believe are hundred percent real comparing to Anna and The King. The fact is that it made and cast by the Thai production team.
And I do not think that "Jan Dara" the other Thai film will be better. It focus on a different aspect.
If some one wants to know Thailand in terms of history, costume, culture and believe, this film is good value for money. Do not expect to wash only the film that last only an hour.
This is the Fact.
