Exciting period-piece Albanian drama epic
10 September 2004 | by (Canterbury, New Zealand) – See all my reviews

Hours of family fun and entertainment in this exciting period-piece Albanian epic drama set in Tirana in the 1660s and partly based on the same story as King Kong (hence the title). John Philip Law features with an all star cast from the Albanian People's National Folk Youth Theatre and some entirely unexpected cameos from some major Bollywood talent, including a very young Shah Rukh Khan.

I particularly enjoyed the semi-intellectual metaphors about post-modern discourse in a pseudo-industrial world very discreetly packaged into the dialogue (listen carefully to Law recite all 134 lines of Ismail Kadare's most famous poem "Ode to a Factory of the Glorious Proletariat" : It doesn't translate very well and in parts is quite incoherent, but the sentiment is deeply moving and you can really feel the tears streaming from his cheeks as he reaches the final rhyming couplets with that small child on his knee). Amazing stuff. I would not have believed it if I hadn't seen it myself. Also a surprise ending that must have cost the Producer a fortune.
