Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge #67 - Tristan & Isolde

If you have just come from our challenge blog... The San-dollar is the unique element I added that might not make sense if you have not seen the movie.. The answer for the sand dollar is the sea... The Sea is what brought them together so I though a little tribute was a great idea.

Ok. I have to say I got totally sucked into this movie.. I was looking for a quote that would summarize this movie in one statement, so I did a little YouTube of this move and I was instantly hooked. I left the main computer and grabbed the laptop and headed down to my crafty place. I watched EVERY scene of this movie and it all felt so familiar but new at the same time. The last time I watched this movie I was on my way to England (ironically) and was trying to rest. The lady who was sitting next to me yacked the whole time. Now don't get me wrong; I can talk as well as anyone or better but it was LATE and I had taken half a sleeping pill to be able to rest. So watching it again made me feel like I had found an old friend with this movie.

I found this quote from the scene when Isolde is reading poetry to Tristan when he was recovered from the sea. Then she repeats the poem to Tristan as they depart one another in the end of the movie.

What a great movie and a great challenge... You won't want to miss this one.. Come play along.. Don't forget we have inspiration starters and loads of samples to inspire...

I also love your detail of the sand dollar. The inside is just beautiful too :) I loved this movie & I remember feeling so torn because the King was not a bad guy but I was rooting for Tristan. Tough choice. Great choice for this week's movie :)
