Anna and the King (movie)

You've heard the story before. Maybe you've watched the movie (or the musical), The King and I.

The timeline and historical detail may not be as accurate as it should be, but storywise, beautiful.

So let me just say this about Anna and the King.

1. Jodie Foster as Anna Leonowens - she's real beautiful.

2. Chow Yun Fat as King Mongkut - the look of love he has, I melt. I really wanted him to kiss her.

3. Young Tom Felton as Louis Leonowens - I didn't realise it was him until I watched again recently.

4. How Can I Not Love You sung by Joy Enriquez, during the last dance between Anna and the King - Everytime I see the last scene, it always brings tears to me. It's so heartbreakingly beautiful. It gets me everytime because I can understand how they feel - to love someone so much, to know you'll be happiest with them and not be able to actually be with them. Yes, I know that feeling pretty well.

I would watch it everytime it's on tv. Again, I really wanted him to kiss her so bad. I think I would cry if he did.

Soundtrack:

I recommend everyone watch this - 



Cannot touch, cannot hold, cannot be together 
Cannot love, cannot kiss, cannot love each other 

Must be strong and we must let go 

Cannot say what our hearts must know 


How can I not love you 

What do I tell my heart 

When do I not want you here in my arms 

How does one walks away 

From all of the memories 

How do I not miss you when you are gone 


Cannot dream, cannot share sweet and tender moments 

Cannot feel how we feel, must pretend it’s over 

Must be brave and we must go on, must not say 

What we’ve known all along 


How can I not love you 

What do I tell my heart 

When do I not want you here in my arms 

How does one walks away 

From all of the memories 

How do I not miss you when you are gone 


How can I not love you 


Must be brave and we must be strong 

Cannot say what we’ve known all along 


How can I not love you 

What do I tell my heart 

When do I not want you here in my arms 

How does one walks away 

From all of the memories 

How do I not miss you when you are gone 


How can I not love you 

When you are gone


Quotable quotes:

"I would like to know why… if science can unravel something as beautiful as music… Why it cannot posit a solution for a schoolteacher and a king. - Anna Leonowens

"Most people do not see the world as it is. They see it as they are."  - Margaret Landon

“I can see it in your eyes. Something awful has happened.” - Anna Leonowens

If love was a choice, who would choose such exquisite pain? - Tuptim

“Until now, Madame Leonowens, I did not understand supposition, man can be satisfied with only one woman.” - Kung Mungkut


"When a woman who has much to say says nothing, her silence can be deafening." - King Mongkut


"It is always surprising how small a part of life is taken up by meaningful moments. Most often they are over before they start although they cast a light on the future and make the person who originated them unforgettable.” - King Chulalongkorn
