It is not the horror of landmines that is making the headlines back home, but reports of the Princess's romance with Dodi Fayed. Speculation fueled by the arrival last night of a car similar to that owned by the Princess.

As it was the case with Hitchcock earlier this year, my main issue with this move was its title. 'Diana' says nothing to me. Who was she, where did she come from, what formed her views and attitudes? However, had the film been called "The last 2 years of Diana" it would have been a wholly different story and it would have done the movie some justice.
Overall, it had the look and feel of a gossip magazine conveyed on the big screen focusing largely who she were with, sleeping, etc. Whilst it became obvious that the Pakistani heart surgeon gave her happiness, it was not enough somehow. She wanted to be loved, he could not live with the publicity that came along with so it appears that Lady Di was doomed to not find love. The only interesting twist this movie introduced was that the whole Dodi affair only took place to make Hasnat jealous.
So, whilst much of it been lost between visual gossip and an unfortunate title, one will be allowed to feel sympathy for the ill-fated princess.
