La Llorona Y El Secreto Del Indio (The Crybaby And The Indian’s Secret)

La Llorona Y El Secreto Del Indio


La Llorona Y El Secreto Del Indio (English: The Crybaby And The Indian’s Secret) gives us an amazing adventure story. With fights between girls and boys as its backdrop, it presents two main figures: an Indian, and a girl who loves her rag doll. The girl is very determined to get back her prized possession, so she is willing to face multiple challenges to get it – even if it means meeting the Indian himself.

This is a lovely film. It starts off with simple yet gorgeous animation, then mingles a kind of fantasy to real life. It’s action-packed and engrossing, especially when we see how the characters are caught up in their own determined beliefs. I love how the story is acted among children; it can be endearing to watch them in their own “innocent” way of playing. Also: that ending. Wow, what an impact.

Do you have an interesting story to tell about your childhood? My grandma would tell me that when I was a kid, I was so feisty, that I would actually protect my friends from their bullies. It seems unlikely now, but I guess there’s something about the bravery and stubbornness of youth.
