A new old one

A old story told in a new way. Like me, who was a child by the time I heard the old one, the old story is for sure a story for children. But this new one is a grown up. I see that even the “adults” can learn from fairy tales.

Maleficent is a fantastic movie, specially if you are familiar with the old tale of the sleeping beauty. The simplicity of it got me really hard. I think they put a little of everything for a fairy tale with great feeling. Can’t say that there’s too much of this or that. Equilibrium.

The story itself, when compared to the original, is a winner. The title change is very accurate, after all we’re not listening a tale about a princess but we’re being told a tale about a fairy who struggles within human feelings and yet can find the way to fight the dark ones.

Great time for me.
