How much do you believe in fantasy. If you ask me, not much... in fact, not at all even. I'm a pragmatist, I don't dwell in anything intangible. This is excatly the profile of Robert Philip (Patrick Dempsey's character) in he movie Enchanted.

But what if one day, a miracle falls down on your lap (literally in case of Robert). What would you do? Refuse to see it? Well, that's what I did (and what I still do). I just refuse to see it. Not because it was not a miracle, but... I guess, just like Robert, fantasy had been painful for me. All those days hoping, believeing and in the end finding yourself beaten to the ground bleeding to death in winter cold teaches me not to rely on fantasy.

And yet, gosh, and yet ... deep inside me, I desperately hope that I am wrong

I guess Giselle (Amy Adam's character) represents that miracle... a wide eyed, innocent miracle that you just fall in love with... well at least Robert did. Should I embrace my own miracle? Unlike Robert's this is the real world. There is no miracle here. Even if there is would the pain be worth it?

I don't know...

Maybe the movie is a sign, for me to hold on. Just wait a bit, miracle takes time sometimes.

I love the movie. It lets me forget the real world...and release myself for sometime into the fantasy world.....

Like Gisselle's mother said, " a place where there's no happy endings..." the real world of course...where else can be worse?

i used to believe in fantasy, how wonderful it felt when i thought it was really the best thing ever hapenned in my life. yups, something like how giselle came into robert's life. but only long after when i realised that there is not such thing as wonderful fantasy in this such a brutal world. u are downright correct. In the end, we'll find ourselves beaten to the ground bleeding to death in winter cold..thanks to believing in fantasy.
