Nice film with traditions
8 December 2007 | by (Mexico) – See all my reviews

The movie represents a magic world of Puebla, Mexico about 1700. It is full of colors and some of the most important buildings of the city appear.

The film is Plenty of Mexican symbols and folklore. It makes the film quite interesting and different.

The legend can be little bit scary for small kids because touches some of the black legends of Mexico. However is not so bad.

The actors who lend their voices make a very interesting performances, almost all of them are very well recognized.

Special mention for the music, which is delicious.

I am afraid that not Mexicans won't completely understand it and therefore won't enjoy fully the film, nevertheless, it should be seen, because it will give the opportunity to learn a little bit more about Mexico in a nice way.
