Pinocchio in the Zócalo: 10,000 people enjoyed the film by Guillermo del Toro – El Sol de México

As a film about humility, obedience and being good children and good parents, this is how the citizens of the capital conceive the new adaptation of “Pinocchio”, directed by Guillermo del Toro, which was screened this Friday night in the Zócalo de la CDMX.

From 5:30 p.m., attendees began to line up to access the function, which brought together 10,000 people, according to official data provided by the Head of Government, Claudia Sheinbaum.

Among the attendees was Miguel Ángel, a young man from the Tláhuac delegation, who found out about the event minutes before it began, and decided to stay because it seems like an excellent cinematographic proposal.

“It is a very well worked film, the simple fact that they have prepared it for 15 years speaks volumes about the dedication they have for its realization,” he commented in an interview with this newspaper.

The young man added that “the message seems very interesting to me, because it is something that parents do not see, that many times they compare us or inject us to do in a way that we are not. It is also a good way of speaking to us children.” .

In addition to the free function, in the surroundings was the “Christmas Verbena” (which will last until January 6), where attendees could enjoy mechanical games,

At another point was Wendy, who came from the Gustavo A. Madero mayor’s office, and saw the film for the first time. “They had told me that she is very pretty. This film has a lesson in being obedient or behaving well,” she commented in an interview.
