The young Jewish girl, Hadassah, goes on to become the Biblical Esther, the Queen of Persia, who saves the Jewish nation from annihilation at the hands of its arch enemy. Written by
Susan Zahn, Publicist.
The film's UK DVD release was titled "Princess of Persia" (despite Esther being a queen, not a princess) in an attempt to capitalize on the unrelated film Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time (2010), which was released three days earlier. See more »
When Esther is running to see the king to plead for the Jews the scene switches back and forth between Xerxes, indoors, and Esther, outdoors. Esther is running through pouring rain yet when Xerxes is shown sunlight can be seen shinning through the windows onto the floor and across the faces of those in the room. See more »
This movie was the most melodramatic two hours of my life. The constant re-playings of flashbacks and wordy narrating was enough to put the man on my left asleep. To add to the poor quality of this movie there was the quality of the picture, sound, and animation which were cheap ploys. The story line dragged out, accompanied by climatic musical overtures, bad acting, and side-conflicts the screenwriter presents, then leaves unanswered.
Though this movie did have some strong aspects: the wonderful wardrobe and makeup of Queen Ester, the monkeys that were quite comical, and three inserted light humored lines, it lacked in everything else.
I love the story of Ester, its up there with the story of Rehab. It just was very tedious to seen it interpreted so poorly. This would have been good if they had inserted some chorus numbers and choreography.
