In 1995 princess Diana appeared before a difficult choice: her spouse prince Charles did not hide the love affairs on the party, marriage went to pieces, but divorce forever would cross out the cloudless royal future of the young woman. The difficult decision to leave the spouse was caused by that Diana in life met for the first time the man who appreciated in it the person, instead of a title, – кардиохирурга Hasnat Khan. For two years Diana plunged into life of the lovers secretly meeting and opening for new world full of passions. And who knows, what would be the world, there is no the most known woman in the world in an ill-starred Parisian taxi at August night the 1997th …

History of princess Diana – at all the simplest for screen versions. In life of this woman there were so many events with the most different emotional color that they with interest would suffice for ten other ladies. To choose from a train of take-off and Diana’s falling any episode or the period and to devote it the film difficult, after all each her step was caused by thousand external factors – from rules of etiquette of royal family before prosecution of paparazzi. Nevertheless "Diana’s" founders took a risky step, having isolated only one of lines of fortune of the British princess. The film covers only two last years her lives, thus being diligently focused on the relations only with one person.
Internal rooms of the Kensingtonsky palace were reproduced according to numerous photos, and here the apartment of the Khan completely «on conscience» imaginations of set dressers
Such choice – it is rather plus for a picture, but even with this rigidly limited plot the tape is represented sometimes a fragmentary set of the facts, instead of a harmonous narration. It is obvious, connected with diligent "vymaryvaniye" from Diana’s life of any mentions of royal family. No, of course, without a mention «spiteful Vindzorov» does not manage, but all these problems, certainly key for understanding of acts of the princess, are somewhere on the far third or fifth plan, in a shot you will not see neither Charles, nor Elizabeth, even children whom the Lady of Dee so valued, only time appear in an insignificant episode, that at once an abyss from a field of vision. The reasons of such approach at once two – authors and producers, on the one hand, for certain did not want to "irritate" royal family which now again does not descend from the first pages of tabloids, as well as twenty years ago. With other party, German Oliver Hirschbiegel who declared at once undertook direction of a picture that at all is not Diana’s admirer, a little that knows about her life and an inner world, and therefore it will appear the ideal detached onlooker with a nezamutnenny look.
Really, Diana Hirschbiegel – first of all the woman. It though "is spoiled" by special situation and special attention to the person as wishes to be darling, it wishes to be pleasant to surrounding people in general and to the specific person in particular. That the doctor Khan became such person, appeared surprise and for Diana therefore their acquaintance and the first steps of lovers turned out the brightest in the film. At this stage the director immerses heroes in the viscous romantic atmosphere, the picture turns in sweet maiden romky it seems «How to become the princess». It is simplifies dramatic nature of history, and without that not too toothy and ground to irreproachable shine a little. Too ideal Diana turned out, too good Hasnat turned out, the film in general is deprived of villains, the Wednesday surrounding the princess is aggressive only.
