#TBT to my delightful interview with Golden Globe winner Guillermo del Toro about ‘The Book of Life’, film that he produced participated as a producer.
If you haven’t watched the film yet, I recommend you to watch it! Not only it is visually extraordinary to watch because it is so colorful but, it also tells a beautiful love story based on the Mexican belief that people don’t die again in the afterlife, as long as your friends and relatives on earth remember you. How beautiful, amiright? 🙂 Because of this, I thought it was appropriate to ask them whether or not they were afraid of death when they were kids.
The film was directed by Jorge Rodríguez and it has a talented cast, like Diego Luna, Zoe Saldana, Channing Tatum, Ron Perlman, Christina Applegate, Ice Cube, Kate del Castillo, Placido Domingo, among many others.

Thoughts: I must say it was impossible for me not to compare this film with the Pixar movie, Coco. First, both films happen during ‘The Day of the Dead’ (Mexican festival) Second, both protagonists, Manolo and Miguel, are discouraged by members of their families from guitar playing. And third, both protagonists end up in the same world (‘The Land of the Dead’) and have to fight to find a way to return home. (Please insert Bruno Mars ‘Don’t Believe me just WATCH! (GIF))
