Guillermo del Toro needed 15 years to fulfill one of his dreams—adapting the story of Pinocchio, the wooden doll who wants to be a real boy. The classic work by Collodi is an excuse for the director to continue diving through his childhood obsessions, as he had already done with the creature from the black lagoon in The Shape of Water (2017) or with ghosts in Crimson Peak (2015). With exquisite stop-motion animation and setting it in the period between wars, this version is quite different from its predecessors and dares to rework the original book. While the story is based on the idea of being a good boy and obeying what is imposed by adults, this musical reworking takes a different course. Paraphrasing the Mexican filmmaker, his film is about finding oneself and not following mandates but, rather, realizing when they are right and when they’re not.
