¿Me perdonas? ¿Toro, me perdonas?
Here’s the thing, i always cry in this part of The Book of Life, bullfighting is still a thing here in Mexico, on Spain, and it’s sad. Since i was a child i’ve fought against this ‘sport’ if you want to call it, i’ve fought against my family who loves seeing bulls die slowly on the hot arena by the hands of non others but humans who rejoice seeing tears and blood come out of those poor animals.
And The Book of Life went and did it, they made a character, a bullfighter who sang to a bull about forgiveness, peace and love. I cannot tell you how much i was crying the first time i saw the movie, how much i still burst into tears watching that scene again and again. It’s a little step but this movie made a change after this character refused to kill a bull in front of his whole village. I still hope that bullfighting gets erased for good.
