I like this movie, simple as that. I like it for many reasons - one would be some of the lines touched my heart (its one of those movies where spoken lines say so much and made me think)...and Robert De Niro was just so hilarious! ...and the soundtrack is not bad...and the lead actor is charming in his character...yes, the word is charming :) And of course, I'm quite a hopeless romantic
Meeting unexpected people in unexpected places alongside unexpected events and letting your hearts be touched unexpectedly leads to an unexpected twist of life, being amazed how all events & people are intertwined for a bigger plan
(just like how I unexpectedly watched this movie, myself. Haha...don't ask me why)
Here are some of the lines that stole my heart away...
Narrator: A philosopher once asked, "Are we human because we gaze at the stars, or do we gaze at them because we are human?" Pointless, really...”Do the stars gaze back?" Now *that's* a question.
Yvaine: You know, I used to watch... I used to watch people having adventures. I envied them.
Tristan: You ever heard the expression "Be careful of what you wish for"?
Yvaine: So I deserve to be hunted for my heart and...
Tristan: [interrupts her] I didn't mean it like that.
Tristan: Look, I admire your dream. A shop boy like me... I never imagined an adventure this big. I just thought I'd find some celestial rock, take it home and that would be it.
Yvaine: And you got me.
[Both begin to laught]
Yvaine: If there's one thing I know about all my years watching Earth, is that people aren't what they may seem. There are shop boys, and there are boys that just happened to work in a shop for the time being. And trust me Tristan, you are no shop boy. You saved my life. Thank you.
Tristan: You want to know what the Captain really whispered to me that day?
Tristan: He told me that my true love
[Yvaine begins to glow]
Tristan: was right in front of my eyes. And he was right.
Yvaine: Are you tempted?
Tristan: Tempted, by what?
Yvaine: Immortality. Let's say it wasn't my heart. Not me. Just a star you didn't know.
Tristan: You seriously think I could kill anybody. Even if I could, I mean, everlasting life? I imagine it would be kind of lonely. Well, maybe if you had someone to share it with. Someone you loved. Then it might be different.
Narrator: A men can not find inmortality unless he has the hearth of a star, and Yvaine gave her entire hearth to him.
(my personal favourite)
Yvaine: You know when I said I knew little about love? That wasn't true. I know a lot about love. I've seen it, centuries and centuries of it, and it was the only thing that made watching your world bearable. All those wars. Pain, lies, hate... It made me want to turn away and never look down again. But when I see the way that mankind loves... You could search to the furthest reaches of the universe and never find anything more beautiful. So yes, I know that love is unconditional. But I also know that it can be unpredictable, unexpected, uncontrollable, unbearable and strangely easy to mistake for loathing, and... What I'm trying to say, Tristan is... I think I love you. Is this love, Tristan? I never imagined I'd know it for myself. My heart... It feels like my chest can barely contain it. Like it's trying to escape because it doesn't belong to me any more. It belongs to you. And if you wanted it, I'd wish for nothing in exchange - no fits. No goods. No demonstrations of devotion. Nothing but knowing you loved me too. Just your heart, in exchange for mine.
ok now, back to work
