Indeed a tribute, this movie tells the story of Princess Diana's last year, from May 1996 to her fatal accident in August 1997. It focuses on her love affairs with a Pakistani heart surgeon and with Dodi Al Fayed, on her battle with the press, her charity work, and her relationship with her sons. Many scenes re-enact well-known images and moments from this year, and the movie ends on the note that Diana was about to accept Dodi's proposal of marriage when the accident occurred. Written by
Having recently re watched this movie after nearly ten years of it's first screening I can't believe how awful it is. Having been made in 1998, it must of been rushed out in no time and it just looks it too. Amy Seacombe who played Diana, although not a great actress did resemble the Princess in a small way, which is more then some other actresses have done in the past, but you just can't stop thinking 'ham' when you watch the acting. The boys who play William and Harry are incredibly annoying, particularly Harry who bounds around like a over excited puppy for most of it. The scenes between Diana and Dodi are cringe making. They talk about making love and making babies, and all Diana could utter was 'that sounds exciting'. That was definitely a moment to hide behind your pillow. It would be nice to see a movie about Princess Diana, but a quality one. Diana: Her True Story was only slightly better. Please, please do not spend your hard earned money on buying this on video tape or DVD. Wait for a cable show to air and judge it yourself but quite honestly, the movie is appalling, the script is bad, the acting is far, far worse then the most z-list soap opera and has hardly any redeeming qualities at all. In fact it has no redeeming qualities at all! A good film if you want a laugh, but if you admire Diana or are looking for a decent Diana film, avoid this like the plague.
