But there is an important detail in which, maybe, we might find the reason of the success of the film, which is shown on TV in many countries so many times a
In the original fairy-tale, and in all its derivations, it’s the Prince Charming who saves the poor girl from her miserable fate and make a princess of her, with all the advantages which might derivate.
In “Pretty Woman” it’s the opposite…It’s Cinderella who saves the Prince.
Of course she has not any richness, any status symbol, but she has the energy of life, the positivity of a curious spirit, while the Prince is passive, bored, without enthusiasm and without motivations.
Cinderella gives him what he lacks of, what he needs to see the colours of life. This is the secret of this little film: the overturning of the fairy-tale roles.
And it’s doesn’t matter if all is equally totally unreal.
Happy New Year!
I wish you fancy, creativity and the free use of your mind
