| More historical investigation was needed
I am an Iranian. I was not born before the revolution but I guess I know about the history of my country enough. I want to start with the good points of the movie: 1. Decoration , dresses , make up was excellent. 2. Italians look like Iranians, this made things easy, especially the king character was so similar. Finding someone as beautiful as Soraya I guess is a hard task, in my eyes she was and still is the most beautiful woman God ever created. They could at least cut her hair like her or I guess even her mother was more similar to Soraya than her. 3. I appreciate the fact that they showed interference of English and US American governments in Iran and the way they exploited us and their influence in the palace.

Now the negative points

1. I wish the writer were more aware of the history, Mosadagh was not related to communist, he was one of the few great leaders we had. I wish they investigated more the history of Iran.

2. I have no idea why they replaced "Ashraf" the sister of King with Shamira. Were they afraid of her? Were they threatened? So bizarre.

3. If I were them I would asked a Mola how to tie a hat, what was that on top of their head?

4. The Italians had no role in that time unless I am not aware unless they made up a story to make the movie interesting for Italians.

5. Some scenes were so cheesy

But in Gerneral, as an Iranian, I really appreciate the production of this movie. They really paid attention to some aspects.
