with Jodie Foster as Anna Leonowens and Chow Yun-Fat as King Mongkut from 1999 movie directed by Andy Tennant, based on the Novel by Margaret Landon. Quotes NARRATOR: She was the first English woman I had ever metShe was the first English woman I had ever met, and it seemed to me she knew more about the world than anyone, but it was a world Siam was afraid would consume them. The monsoon winds had whispered her arrival like a coming storm. Some welcomed the rain, but others feared a raging flood. Still, she came, unaware of the suspicion that preceded her. But it wasn't until years later that I began to appreciate how brave she was. And how alone she must've felt. An English woman, the first I'd ever met.
ANNA LEONOWENS: I, uh, ordered this some time ago for the children, and it's a fine example of scientific thinking, as music is mathematical in nature. KING MONGKUT: Chords, constructed from notes in intervals of thirds, and so on. ANNA LEONOWENS: Precisely. I would like to know why, if science can unravel something as beautiful as music, why it cannot posit a solution for a school teacher and a king?why it cannot posit a solution for a school teacher and a king? KING MONGKUT: The manner in which people might understand such new possibilities is also process of evolution. ANNA LEONOWENS: Everything in Siam has its own time.

ANNA LEONOWENS: I still must go, Your Majesty. KING MONGKUT: So, where is it you will be going? ANNA LEONOWENS: England. KING MONGKUT: Home. This is good, Mem. Very good for Louis as well. ANNA LEONOWENS: What? KING MONGKUT: Am wondering if, given circumstances, it is appropriate for King to ask Anna to dance?

Until now Madam Leonowens, I did not understand supposition man could be satisfied with only one woman.
NARRATOR: I was only a boy, but the image of my father holding the woman he loved for the last time has remained with me throughout the years. It is always surprising how small a part of life is taken up by meaningful moments. Most of them, they are over before they start, although they cast a light on the future and make the person who originated them unforgettable. Anna had shined such a light on Siam.
