Under the Name of Love

have you ever watch a movie called Ever After : A Cinderella Story? if you haven't, i suggest you to watch it. well...some people might look at it as a typical, common, boring, romance movie. but, i see much more than that. it is indeed somewhat like the fairytale called Cinderella. but this movie gives the phrase "and they lived happily ever after" to a whole new level. It is about a young woman, named Daniel de Barbarac...how ever you spell it. Being turn into a servant by her stepmother right after her father died. Similar to Cinderella story. But the stepsister, there's two, of course, but only one that is bad...the other one is actually quite nice towards "Cinderella" of this movie, in fact, she even helped Daniel to live happily ever after with her prince...which is also the prince of France...prince Henry. I'm not going to tell the story from A to Z, you just gonna have to watch it. Besides, if i tell it it will sound like an ordinary love story. i don't know how to explain it, it just...what they've been through to get to the stage of "happily ever after"...could bring tears of happiness to my eyes. and to imagine...just imagine...ever since you were 8 years old, you've been living as a servant of the 16th or 17th century. which is in fact, among the lowest status of the time. and even worse, you live in your own house with your own family...well, step family but family still...and yet they live as the rich people while you...just a nobody servant. kinda painful, right? then after 10 years of suffering and within those time you wish that some miracle will happen that you will be accepted as part of the family. and something did happen, you fell in love...but with royalty? now that sounds too impossible to happen...but let just imagine it did happen and can you imagine the trouble that you will face when your family that turn you into the lowest rank of community finds out? and after all that...you jump from the lowest of all status...to the highest of all status...a princess and soon-to-be-queen-of-France. can you just imagine how that feel? oh my god...no wonder it is call a fairy tale...hahahaha. and for the contrary, try to imagine the other way round. from among the noblest of all status, the courtiers...to the lowest one of all...servants...for the rest of your life....wow...that's tough.

O.o

I know...I'm babbling. Only because I cannot find the right words to describe why this movie is so sweet and deserve the phrase "and they lived happily ever after"...
