Storyline

"The Last Princess" is both a drama and an action film that is based upon the life of Princess Deok-hye (1912-1989) who was born into Korea's last royal family in 1912 as the youngest and only daughter of the last King of Jo-seon, ex-Emperor Gojong and his concubine Yang Gui-in. In truth, her sad and tragic life was shaped at the highest levels of the Japanese Imperial family and its government, and carried out by their Korean collaborators - a path that led to Japanese political ends at the expense of her personal happiness. Two years before her birth, the Japanese Imperial Army surrounded Gwang-bok-gong Palace with artillery batteries with orders to shoot while Japanese officials inside the Palace coerced Emperor Su-jong's (King Go-jong's son) cabinet to approve Korea's annexation to the Japan Empire. After her beloved father suddenly died from poisoning in 1919 - allegedly by the occupying Japanese - the Japanese forced Princess Deokye to leave Korea and her family for an education...

Movie is pretty much emotional and, I admit, it made me cry at the end, but beside that, really nothing special. If you watch it you won't regret it, but if you skip it you won't miss much. Technically speaking, movie is OK, it does not fail anywhere, but it does not impress either, and acting is good. Plot is ordinary occupation story, with the fact that in Europe we are used to see German occupation of European countries while here we have Japanese occupation of Korea. But beside location and different race of actors this is basically nothing new. I believe that younger generations of Japanese and Korean people should see it, but for the rest of the world I doubt it is too interesting. Honestly, I was a bit bored. Not enough to give up on it, but if, for example, I was forced to stop watching for some reason, I believe I would not continue later. I would probably completely forgot about it. Leading actress is real sweetheart thou, and she was great in her role, but beside that overall impression of the movie is
