What A History
14 August 2004 | by (Indonesia) – See all my reviews

The story are not same with what I've read about Shah M. R. Pahlevi and Princess Soraya, but this is enough interesting and a good one for showing a dramatic love story with sad ending (even I don't understand their language at all).

However this one is great, just see their acting I can understand what they're meant. Beside Anna Valle was so beautiful (just look at her eyes and her hair) and very good in this tv show. So was Erol Sander, he was handsome and a good actor. The director is doing such a wonderful job by direct this tv show. The dress that Anna Valle used in this show was very good and very perfect for her (so was about the jewelry that she wear).

In a real life Shah M.R. Pahlevi is a handsome man, and Princess Soraya is a beautiful lady.
