Amy Pond, The Girl Who Waited

April 17, 2010

“The moment with the apple is the moment where she actually has to make the choice whether she goes with it or not. Goes with it – I mean she spent all those years hardening her heart against the idea of an imaginary friend and I can imagine she’s got difficult – I bet, I bet she gives Rory hell, we know she does cause she’s skeptical. She doesn’t – she’s learned to be tough on things like that. I bet she was mean about Santa Claus; I bet she was mean about the Tooth Fairy. And here’s the – and what you don’t expect when you’re that kind of cynic, when you’ve grown up with that sort of carapace formed around you, you don’t expect your imaginary friend to turn up and be EXACTLY what he claimed to be all those years ago. Even with that, can you remember? You’ve had twelve years of growing up to be a slightly different person than you were going to be because this person let you down and they’re standing there asking you, outrageously asking you, to trust them, even though everything they’re saying is completely bonkers. That’s the moment where she has to decide that she’s not grown up in a way, that she can still be a child. She’s still allowed to believe in her childhood hero.” – Steven Moffat, Doctor Who Confidential S05E01

I’ve actually been meaning to post this for the longest time. Being a fan of period dramas and romances, it was a fresh bit of cinematic air the way this movie not only portrays a historical love story, but also shows the  deliberate development of the affection of the main characters for each other. Like with a lot of films, especially love stories, I wanted this to be longer because I do enjoy the little intimate moments more so than any grand gestures. My only qualm about the movie is that I was a bit “faked” out at times, thinking that a particular scene would be the end and it turning out not to be the case. I had written a review of this before but I have forgotten where I have placed it, in any case, all it really says is this: It is a beautiful film, with a beautiful story, brought to life by wonderful actors, I recommend you see it.

After I find the Blue Fairy then I can go home

Where the wave of moonlight glosses
The dim gray sands with light,
Far off by furthest Rosses
We foot it all the night,
Weaving olden dances
Mingling hands and mingling glances
Till the moon has taken flight;
To and fro we leap
And chase the frothy bubbles,
While the world is full of troubles
And anxious in its sleep.
Come away, O human child!
To the waters and the wild
With a faery, hand in hand,
For the world’s more full of weeping than you can understand.
William Butler Yeats, “The Stolen Child”

Just an excerpt from the poem since I just caught the end of AI: Artificial Intelligence on HBO. That part always kind of kills me, {SPOILER ALERT} the one where the aliens make a clone of Monica for David but one that can only stay alive for one day,{END SPOILER} even though I’m not exactly the biggest fan of the rest of the movie. It’s pretty creepy in parts really and I vaguely remember people taking their kids to see this because it looked like a children’s film somewhat. It’s a decent exploration into human nature, and dehumanization, and morality among other themes [are there? I have actually forgotten].

What is your responsibility to something you create that truly loves you?
