A falling star...

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.

Stardust, one of my favourite movies. A movie based on the famous book of Neil Gaiman. A story about a falling star (Yvaine) who falls in love with Tristan. Click here for the synopsis from the official website. This is one great and fantastic movie about fantasy and love life. It's so good I can't even describe it with words. The video below is one of the best scenes of the movie in which Yvaine actually told Tristan (who were at that time was a mouse) that she falls in love with him. I posted the quotes below the video so you can hear and read the very nice dialogue.

Yvaine: You know when I said I knew little about love? That wasn't true. I know a lot about love. I've seen it. I've seen centuries and centuries of it, and it was the only thing that made watching your world bearable. All those wars. Pain and lies. Hate... It made me want to turn away and never look down again. But to see the way that mankind loves... You could search to the furthest reaches of the universe and never find anything more beautiful. So yes, I know that love is unconditional. But I also know it can be unpredictable, unexpected, uncontrollable, unbearable and strangely easy to mistake for loathing, and... What I'm trying to say, Tristan, is... I think I love you. My heart... It feels like my chest can barely contain it. Like it doesn't belong to me any more. It belongs to you. And if you wanted it, I'd wish for nothing in exchange. No gifts. No goods. No demonstrations of devotion. Nothing but knowing you loved me too. Just your heart, in exchange for mine.

I can't comment on the movie because I haven't seen it, but I will definitely try to find it at the video store (not much luck these days, they don't even have Twilight yet), that's what happens when you live in the sticks!
;)
But I DO like your question "do the stars gaze back?"....I truly believe they do!
