The first time I heard about this movie was probably through the CBC news, when the Oscar nominations of the year 2010 was just released. At that time I was curious because it was nominated but the name was unheard of and the main actor had a quiet familiar look. Then I forgot about it for a while because of the exams and so on, and until yesterday, when a friend asked me if I would like to go. I knew it was the chance, so I went and watched it. What an amazing film it turned out to be. Based on the true story of the George VI, but there were so much drama that makes you sympathize into the actors and the movie as a whole. The story line of the king trying so hard to improve the speech reminded me of the scene from the My Fair Lady, when Audrey Hepburn was being taught to speak like a noble woman. The King's Speech was an unique movie that gave me the feeling of watching a classical movie, not an old movie. The combined feeling of the visual and the soundtrack was outstanding and the choice of the famous classical pieces at the various scenes magically matched as if they were written for this movie. I still can't forget the last scene, when the Beethoven's piano concerto No.5 was played after the king giving the speech, which fit perfectly even with the name of the concerto, 'Emperor'. On the night of the Oscar, February 27th, I hope to see this British film receiving the best picture award.
