if Cervantes reborn…

“dichosa edad, y siglo dichoso aquel adonde saldrán a luz las famosas hazañas mías, dignas de entallarse en bronce, esculpirse en mármoles y pintarse en tablas para memoria en lo futuro. ¡Oh tú, sabio encantador, quienquiera que seas, a quien ha de tocar el ser coronista de esta peregrina historia! Ruégote que no te olvides de mi buen Rocinante compañero eterno mío en todos mis caminos y carreras.”*
Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra, El ingenioso hidalgo de Don Quijote de la Mancha, Cap. II

‘The Man who killed don Quixote’, by Terry Gilliam, is something of magic and fantastic. No boring time, no minute in which your attention is not masterly driven, in an effective intersection of reality and fiction, past, present, and future.
Above all, the falling in love with a visionary man, incredibly sweet and definitely a dreamer.
If Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra reborn, he would embrace Terry Gilliam, and would have a one day long nice conversation with him.

*“Happy the age, happy the time, in which shall be made known my deeds of fame, worthy to be moulded in brass, carved in marble, limned in pictures, for a memorial for ever. And thou, O sage magician, whoever thou art, to whom it shall fall to be the chronicler of this wondrous history, forget not, I entreat thee, my good Rocinante, the constant companion of my ways and wanderings.”
