Storyline

The passage from this world to the fantasy kingdom of Stormhold is through a breach in a wall beside an English village. In the 1800s, a boy becomes a man when he ventures through the breach in pursuit of a fallen star, to prove his love for the village beauty. The star is no lump of rock, it's a maiden, Yvaine. Tristan, the youth, is not the only one looking for her: three witches, led by Lamia, want her heart to make them young; and, the sons of the dead king of Stormhold want her because she holds a ruby that will give one of them title to the throne. Assisting Tristan are his mother, the victim of a spell, and a transvestite pirate of the skies. Will Tristan win his true love? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Trivia

When Matthew Vaughn pitched the film to executives at Paramount Pictures, the studio wanted a more recognizable name like Orlando Bloom to play Tristan. It was only after Vaughn had cast Robert De Niro, Michelle Pfeiffer and Claire Danes in the film did Paramount agree to let Vaughn cast Charlie Cox as Tristan. See more »

Goofs

After realizing Yvaine can't cross the wall we see Tristan running down the street. One shot is of him from the front, and the dust and a tyre track (presumably from the camera rig he is chasing) is briefly visible. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
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.

My Fantasy Fix
25 July 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie has everything a fantasy movie should have, romance, clever witticisms, great acting and a fair dose of magic.

I thoroughly enjoyed this movie and was drawn to its original plot (based on the Neil Gaiman novel which I am now looking to read) and colorful characters.

One of the most striking things to me actually was how self contained the story is. Unlike so many sci-fi fantasy movies out there right now which leave open-endings and such this was a pure fairy-tale, satisfying in and of itself with no need for a sequel.

Original. Fun. Feel-good Fantasy.
