Lionel Mill's film has unique access to Prince Saud bin Abdul Mohsen, one of the rulers of the rich, powerful and secretive Saudi royal family.
This is a fascinating insight into the conflicts between tradition and modernity in one of the world's most conservative and autocratic countries.
The Prince seems to speak very openly and seems to only recite verbatim the Royal Family message in a very few instances.
He seems to be open honest about his country. Including continuing pressures from the West for quick and relatively radical reforms.
See in particular 30:04 in the video. I can't argue with his logic.
The interviews with the Saudi people were most interesting. In particular the plight of the Saudi women.
My take: While the people of Saudi Arabia (in particular women) want more freedom they don't necessarily want the Western European political system or its values.
