Where the wild things are…
where the wild things are by Mauric Sendak, es un libro de cuentos infantil que uno lee de una sentada pero que rápidamente comprende qué hay más allá de la simpleza de esta historia. Tom Hanks ha querido producir para este otoño una pelicula basada en este cuento, que nos habla de los miedos infantiles y del resguardo que uno encuentra en esos lugares a los que solo se puede llegar, montado en nuestro bote privado (como Max) y navegando por los reconditos lugares de nuestra imaginación. Para encontrarnos allí con eso que nos aterra, vencerlo y darnos cuenta que podemos…y al final…como en todo cuento que” there is no place like home”.
The nigth Max wore his wolf suit and made mischief of one kind and another…his mother called him “WILD THING” and Max said I’LL EAT YOU UP” So he was sent to his bed without eating anything…That very night in Max’s rooms a forest grew and grew and grew until his ceiling hung with vines and the walls became the world around…and an ocean tumbled by with a private boat for Max and he sailed off throug nigth and day, and in and out of weeks, and almost over a year to where the wild things are.
And when he came to the place where the wild things are, they roared their terrible roars and gnashed their terrible teeth and rolled their terrible eyes and showed their terrible claws till Max said “BE STILL” and tamed them with the magic trick of staring into all their yellow eyes blinking once and their where frigthened and the called him the MOST WILD THING OF ALL (…)And Max the king of all Wild things was lonely and wanted to be there someone loved him best of all…so he gave up being a king of where the wild things are.
