Off-topic, but this is because the Unicode escape sequence
'\uxxxx' is not being interpreted here. You have to explicitly
do that. Here is an example with '\u2018', the opening
quote (I did not have a font which covered '\ud835'). Please
note the difference between:
print unicode('\u2018')


print unicode('\u2018').decode('unicode-escape')
