only one night

Only one night, a love story woven by a beautiful woman will actually touch the king's heart. Love at first sight, race and politics, life and love, all mixed together...
I don't understand Esther who chose to describe the Bible. The story is a thousand years ago, a fairy tale love. Because of this, he is more suitable to be sung, giving the listeners room to imagine, rather than being put on the screen. As a movie, as entertainment or as an appreciation, the story is too cliché - a young and beautiful girl uses her wisdom to save the country, save the king, and save her own love for love. Is this done to satisfy the public's longing for fairy tale love, or is it really to reproduce history? ? ?
As the protagonist, her personality, wisdom, beauty, bold pursuit of love, and persistence in dreams are still touching...

ps. Just reading the English subtitles is really tiring

One Night with the King quotes

  • Queen Esther: [daunted by Xerxes's anouncement, to Jesse] Nor there's not to be a Queen here any longer. Mordecai has given me his blessing. Let us leave tomorrow. Together.

  • Mordecai: [worried, about the search for a new Queen] There's no need for alarm. Nor likelihood they will not come for you. And not all who taken will be chosen. Not that the Queen has already been selected through bribery or chicanery.

    Queen Esther: [distressed] How do I keep our laws? How do I pray? What excuse do I offer God for not keeping his commandments?

    Mordecai: Oh, Hadassah. God see's the forward observance according to natures place. I think it would be better... if you forget that you were a Jew. If it is a sin, then, then, then let it be on my head. Promise me you will do that if you are taken. Promise me that!

    Queen Esther: If I am taken, I will do as you say.

    Mordecai: We should give a different name. Hadassah is too Jewish... Esther! Esther is a good Babylonian name. Yes. That is what we shall call you from now on. Esther of Susa. Promise me. Promise if you are taken.

    Queen Esther: I said if I am taken. If, if, if...

    [rising to the door]

    Queen Esther: But for now, you should look for me on the streets of Jerusalem. Dancing like David before the glory of the Lord.

    Mordecai: Uh Hadassah?

    Queen Esther: [singing, before she leaves] Who?
