Diana – Queen Of Hearts (British Documentary/Biography)
C+ Sound: C+ Extras: D Film: B
has been said about Diana Spencer, the Princess of Wales that you’d think you
had heard it all, but a new movement is underway to assure her legacy of a
positive, progressive future with less starvation, hatred and war. The circumstances of her death are
ever-questionable, but Diana – Queen Of
Hearts (2007) from filmmaker Jenny De Yong is a very smart, rich look at
her life and triumphs that are just starting to pay dividends.
that has been said and done about her life, this is one of the best programs of
its kind and a great flipside to the hit film The Queen (reviewed elsewhere on this site) to show you why more
explicitly people and fans reacted to her death the way they did. Running about 90 minutes, it is a
never-boring trip through her life cut far too short. When you take all the sentimentality and
illicit appeals to pity away, there is a strong story here and this is one of
the best takes to date on that life.
Don’t miss it.
X 1 image was shot in low-def digital video, with all kinds of stills and
analog video added to tell the story.
Editing is good. The Dolby
Digital 2.0 Stereo is simple with no surrounds, but is pretty clean and clear
throughout despite the various sources. There
are no extras.
