Quotes

Ana: [unable to sleep] Isabel?

Isabel: [opening her eyes] What?

Ana: [whispering] Tell me what you were going to tell me.

Isabel: [whispering] About what?

Ana: The movie.

Isabel: Not now... Tomorrow.

Ana: Now... You promised. Why did he kill the girl, and why did they kill him after that?... You don't know - you're a liar.

Isabel: They didn't kill him, and he didn't kill the girl.

Ana: How do you know? How do you know they didn't die?

Isabel: Everything in the movies is fake. It's all a trick. Besides, I've seen him alive.

Ana: Where?

Isabel: In a place I know near the village. People can't see him. He only comes out at night.

Ana: Is he a ghost?

Isabel: No, he's a spirit.

Isabel: Like the spirit Dona Lucia talks about?

Isabel: Yes, but spirits have no bodies. That's why you can't kill them.

Ana: But he had one in the movie. He had arms and feet. He had everything.

Isabel: It's a disguise they put on when they go outside...

Ana: If he only comes out at night, how can you talk to him?

Isabel: I told you he was a spirit. If you're his friend, you can talk to him whenever you want. Just close your eyes and call him... It's me, Ana... It's me Ana...

[they hear what sounds like ominous footsteps and are silent]

Isabel: Papa, have you ever picked a bad mushroom?

Fernando: No. You know why?

Isabel: Why?

Fernando: Because I always do like my grandfather told me.

[he gets up and starts to walk; the girls follow]

Fernando: If you're not sure a mushroom's good, don't pick it. Because if it's bad, and you eat it, it's your last mushroom and your last everything too.
