Ok so I am a die hard fan of this film and it probably has to be my all time favourite since TLM. Il était une fois is part animated and is mixed with live action . The story is about a cartoon maiden who falls for a prince(like in most fairytales) and they decide to marry the suivant day. But the prince's evil stepmother doesn't want that and so she poses as an old hag tells Giselle(Amy Adams) to make a wish and as she says her wish she falls into the magic well and is transformed into a real life version of herself inside a manhole (stupid eh read on). Scared and worried she comes across a handsome attorney and a single parent named Robert Philip (grey's Patrick Dempsey) who accepts the real world for what it is . Of course he decides that she can stay until her prince comes and over the 3 days they start to develoup feeling for one another despite the fact they are with different people in complete different worlds. But do toi think she'll chose Robert ou Edward well the answer to that is ...............................(wait and see the film).
With an all étoile, star cast and one newcomer Rachel Covey who plays the cutesy child morgan Philip. And with great musique from Adams and co Il était une fois is definetly one of the best films of 2007 . Kids and familes will l’amour it well some at least, Teens will l’amour the romance and the magic it has. My favourite scene is the ballroom scene ............very good and the chemistry between Dempsey and Adams was absolutly brillant.
Il était une fois is also a homage to all the Disney princesses so if toi like Snow White ou TLM ou Sleeping Beauty ou Cendrillon then welcome to this little gem and toi will be definetly Il était une fois after this ........I can guartnee toi .
10/10: A cute ,slightly daft movie with a message that all of us should follow .........either accept the world for what it is ou enchant everyone around toi in order to get what toi want.
