It is a film based on real life of Marcos Rodriguez Pantoja, a man who as a child was sold by his father to a shepherd; he learned to care for goats, to hunt, find food and firewood. But when the shepherd one day he disappeared, the young Marcos was left alone, and began to live with the wolves that found in a cave.
It's a movie that makes you feel many emotions, feelings of love, tenderness and pity for the child abandoned to their fate. Feel admiration for how brave he was to survive in a hostile environment. Feeling anger toward all those who neglect and abuse, and feel sad to see how the animals given all the love and companionship those humans denied.
The story is told with sensitivity and exquisite delicacy, away from the morbid and the crudeness do not need. It is a story that speaks for itself, shown with respect and treated as just a great storyteller as you can treat Gerardo Olivares ("La gran final" 2006, "14 kilómetros" 2007).
It's a flawless film from all points of view. The story is beautiful and so wonderful is told by his manager that is has turned all his efforts in getting the film leaves the viewer excited. The images and the landscapes are beautiful, and the soundtrack (Klaus Badelt), is spectacular, but the story and the masterful interpretation by the actors, especially Juan Jose Ballesta and child Manuel Camacho, make it one of the best Spanish films of recent times
