Queen Farah and a left wing reporter
1 October 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie interviews the Queen of Iran (whose husband the Shah was deposed in 1979). It is not the usual sycophant publicity garbage and you can really size up Farah.

These figures of history hold a fascination especially if you get a candid look at them.

Farah's life was tragic...two of children committed suicide. Humiliation and loss of power is never a joy.

But this is what makes her someone you like better.

I highly recommend this documentary.
