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 cross-dressing pirate of the skies. Will Tristan win his true love? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Trivia

The vicious-looking scimitar-shaped glass knife that Lamia uses was originally designed by Matthew Vaughn for Magneto in X-Men: The Last Stand (2006), but it was never actually used in that film. See more »

Goofs

Toward the end of the movie, Lamia uses a steel on the edge of her glass knife (presumably to sharpen it). Steels are only used to correct a curled edge on a regular knife. A glass or crystal knife's edge cannot curl, so a steel would not help and might actually damage the edge. This error was also present in Neil Gaiman's novel: in the commentary to the audio-book he says that while recording it he noticed for the first time that he had made "a huge and embarrassing mistake in sheer physical science" when writing the novel because during a revision he had changed the knife from metal to obsidian (volcanic glass) but had left in the description of Lamia sharpening the knife on a whetstone.

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.

Previews do no justice...
2 August 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Why are the previews so blah for a movie that is so awesome!! Everyone should know what an excellent movie this is. It is engaging and funny from moment one, original, and well-acted. I wish the movie was doing itself as good press as it deserves!

For anyone that loved The Princess Bride, Labyrinth, and other truly funny and original fantasy adventure, this is one of the great ones. Robert DeNiro is hysterical. Relative newcomer Charlie Cox is an incredible leading man. Claire Danes is fantastic as always. Michelle Pfiefer is making quite a splash with her recent returns to the screen. There are also a lot of wonderful moments from minor characters...even down to facial expressions.
