After a decade floating around the Hollywood back lots trading dignity for cash and technical experience on A Little Princess and Great Expectations, Alfonso Cuarón realized he needed to emotionally involve himself in his source material, letting his personal life, his upbringing and his cultural experience bleed into the next project he chose to pursue. Part of the Nuevo Cine Mexicano auteurs who enjoyed considerable international success (Iñárritu’s Amores perros were interchangeably part of the same discourse), the resulting cinematic masterpiece Y tu mamá también was simultaneously a visually stunning portrait of Mexico (the film was shot by master cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki) and the fragility of friendship, and a heartbreaking meditation on the transient nature of youth teeming with life and love and the tragic beauty of naiveté. Unsurprisingly, this Venice Film Festival winning film would become Mexico’s top grossing film of all time in its first weekend. »

20th Century Fox will release The Book of Life in theaters this fall, and the animated film may be worth a look for the visuals alone. The movie’s storyline, as was co-written by the director Jorge R. Gutierrez (El Tigre: The Adventures of Manny Rivera), follows the adventures of Manolo (voiced by Diego Luna), a young man out to fulfill his dreams. That includes winning the heart of Maria (Zoe Saldana), who makes it clear that’s easier said than done, in the above trailer.
Book of Life‘s second theatrical preview, similar to its previous trailer, doesn’t shed so much light on its plot as it does on the rich, colorful, and lively visual aesthetic of the film (inspired by traditional artwork for Mexico’s holiday Dia de Muertos), as well as the movie’s kid-friendly humor and cartoony hijinks. However, according to the official ...

"I'll do anything to be with Maria."

But things get complicated when a wager between the gods of the dead over who will win the hand of Maria (Zoe Saldana) forces Manolo into an adventure through fantastical worlds.
