On the wings of a fairy tale

Linnea 2022-04-19 09:01:42

The prince falls in love with Cinderella, and it turns out "the prince and Cinderella live a happy life..."; so what happens when the princess falls in love with a tabloid reporter? Of course they can't be together, although every audience will hope that they can "live happily together"!

The story told in Roman Holiday is actually full of contradictions between reality and ideal. We believe: the power of love is great. But a love story with a perfect ending can only happen in fairy tales, something we dream of but most people can't have. Like a beautiful princess and a tabloid reporter, there is only one intersection in their lives. In the end, the princess had to return to the palace and was watched by thousands of eyes; the reporter could only become one of the thousands of eyes, silently watching the princess in her heart. When their eyes met and separated again, the ending was as expected. It may be because of this incomplete love story that "Roman Holiday" has become a "classic" in the minds of generations.
