Farah Diba Pahlavi: The Last Princess

This is the turbulent life story of Farah Diba Pahlavi, who became the first and only Empress in the history of Persia. The history and culture of this country, which dates back over millennia, is as much the theme of this film as is the life of the Empress, a role model to all women in Iran.

Her husband the Shah was the son of a military brigadier who took power, not royalty by birth
Verified purchase
Very sad ! I am sure they would have helped Iran a lot more had they still continued as leaders of the country. This is a documentary about the wife of the displaced Shah of Iran.
However what the documentary doesn't say is the Shah/ King was not royalty by birth nor was his wife,Farah an Empress by birth. Farah Diba Pahlavi was married to the then Shah. He was the son of a military brigadier not a royal by birth.
His father who was just a Military Brigidier self appointed himself as the ruler/ Shah of Iran and when he died his son became the Shah( King) who later self appointed himself as King of Kings & gave his wife tge title the Empress so not royalty by birth .

However this documentary shows how badly they were treated when situation turned against the Shah & they had to exile.
Very sad what happened to them and I wonder perhaps the lives of common men and women in Iran today coukd have been better had they been in power

The Self-Proclaimed Shah of Irans Wife Farah Pahlavi
Verified purchase
An interesting biographical retrospective of her life and to a lesser extent a refection of her children.
Its Farah Pahlavi's take on her life in Iran pre and post-revolution. Interestingly it pays more focus on USA & France than any other European countries with reference to life experiences. Other than Egypt - Cairo his last resting place where the family were given respite and Santuary, during the Shah's illness and demise.

Faithful service, and the rise and fall of kingdoms
Verified purchase
Heartbreakingly frank, this documentary follows the fate of Farah Diba Pahlavi and her family, the family of the Shar of Iran, through to its devastating exile. Beautifully crafted documentary filmmaking, drawing on academic, political and family contributions, with a narrative that is both clarifying and honest, yet also poetic. Very moving.

fascinating, balanced... and tragic at many levels
Verified purchase
Although I've known about the Iranian Revolution since my teens - when it happened and when, by coincidence, my family knew people caught up in it - I've learned a lot from this well balanced and I think very fair documentary, and am grateful for it.

Gloomy Iran!

A true and very sad documentary.
Pahlavi dynasty did a lot for Iran and Iranians and was about to do more if the nation could be more patient.
RIP M.R. Shah and stay strong as always Shahbanoo 🌺
