Cinderella, The Movie

Posted on: March 22, 2015

CinderellaHal pertama yang menarik perhatian gue dari film Cinderella adalah lokasi syutingnya. Rumah tempat tinggal Cinderella saja sudah sangat cantik dan mempesona, apalagi istana tempat tinggal sang pangeran! Kelihatan lebih real dan lebih indah daripada Maleficent yang released tahun lalu. Benar-benar tipikal film yang sangat memanjakan mata kalo menurut gue.

Lalu bagaimana dengan jalan ceritanya?

Well, Cinderella is Cinderella. We all know her life story from the beginning until the end. There’s not much of surprises, yet I like this movie a lot more than the cartoon version.

Hal selanjutnya yang gue sukai, film versi 2015 ini menceritakan sedikit lebih banyak hal tentang sosok ibu tiri. Tentang isi hati dan asal muasal kebencian dia kepada Cinderella. We can see her more as a human in this movie version.

Selanjutnya, gue juga suka dengan bagian ending di mana sang Pangeran (yang sudah naik tahta menjadi Raja) ternyata menyamar sebagai pengawal demi ikut mencari Cinderella ke seluruh penjuru negeri. The idea of a man trying so hard to get the woman he loves always works to make my heart feels warm 😉

Gue juga suka satu scene yang menceritakan Cinderella sudah pernah bertemu satu kali dengan sang Pangeran yang kemudian, pertemuan singkat itu pula yang mendorong the prince charming menggelar pesta dansa yang terbuka untuk seluruh gadis di kerajaannya. Setidaknya, ini masih sedikit lebih masuk akal ketimbang jatuh cinta dan tergila-gila hanya karena satu kali pertemuan di pesta dansa.

Yang terakhir, kepribadian Cinderella di film ini terlihat lebih hidup, lebih menarik, dan juga lebih menyentuh hati. I like it when she looked at her step mother and said, “I forgive you.” Percakapan Cinderella dengan ayah kandungnya, dan juga dengan sang Pangeran sudah memberi bumbu tersendiri untuk fairy tale ini.

Terlepas dari kelebihannya, ada pula beberapa hal yang mengusik gue sepanjang film. Yang pertama soal pinggang Cinderella yang kecil banget! Benar-benar mirip figur boneka Barbie kalo menurut gue. Lalu yang ke dua soal noraknya penampilan kedua saudara tiri Cinderella. Si Ibu tiri, meskipun nyentrik, setidaknya masih terlihat fashionable. Tapi kenapa dua puteri kesayangannya dia biarkan berdandan norak seperti itu?

Cinderella gimanapun tetap bukan the best movie of the year buat gue. Apalagi sebetulnya gue tipikal orang yang suka sinis dengan pola pikir ala fairy tale. Maksud gue, kenyataannya hidup tidak pernah semudah itu. Tapi tetap saja, nonton film ini terasa cukup menghibur buat gue. Lagipula, seperti yang pernah gue dengar di salah satu American TV show, “Everyone, no matter how cynical, wants a happy ending.”

From classmates to travelmates! Been friends since we were only 15 years old! Met them up today and we’ve made a lot of plans for our coming trips. Let’s make it happen!
I don’t know why but I couldn’t seem to get any new outfit for Lebaran this year. I went to three shopping malls but then I went home with empty hands. So here I am... wearing one old dress I bought a couple years ago. Today before Eid prayer was begun, I saw something that made me smile. I instantly knew that I’ve had something way more important than a new dress for myself. I’d be happy if I had a new dress, but I’m still perfectly happy even without any of it. God has been incredibly kind to me and Ramadhan this year couldn’t be more miraculous to me. I am full of flaws, but I’ve had way more than enough, and I couldn’t ask for more. Eid mubarak and please do forgive me for all the wrong said and done. Let’s celebrate this holly day as the new beginning for each and everyone of us. Love - Riffa.
Arfa, my very first nephew, is turning six today! Just two days ago, he told me, “Aunty, when I grow up, I want to be vey rich so that I can buy for you anything you want!” He’s lovable, isn’t he? It never ceases to amaze me to see all the new things he learned, said, and did in the past 6 years. He’s growing up so fast and I can’t be prouder of him! Happy birthday, Arfa! Wish you’ll always be a loving kid and may Allah always bless you in every step of the way. So much love - your proud Aunty ❤️
