Most Helpful Customer Reviews
La Tutayegua is a story about a young latin boy, who’s tale shares many qualities of Pan’s Labyrinth. The story is told through the boy’s perspective, which gives it an almost child like quality, but this child has already seen too much in life. He shows us the harsh realities of being born into poverty, and the magic and fantasy that one cultivates with such a life. Ultimately the story gives one hope, but the sadness it creates, is beautiful and overwhelming at times, and will linger with you well past the end of the story itself.
