“El laberinto del fauno” and what history tells us

I usually don’t watch movies and I almost never watch Spanish, French or any other non-English movies.
Yet i think El laberinto del fauno is one of the best movies ever made.

I won’t review it as words are to poor to better express the feelings i have felt.

Sometimes, somebody needs to remind us to think, to be awear of our short life among humans. We need to be awear about the responsibility we bear to preserve the planet for our future generations, and what is better to awake us than the knowledge about our history told in superb, heart-changing way.

History teaches us many things. We just have to listen:

Stefan cel Mare a great Romanian leader from the past once said: “Moldova n-a fost a strămoşilor mei, n-a fost a mea şi nu e a voastră, ci a urmaşilor voştri şa urmaşilor urmaşilor voştri în veacul vecilor” ( translated roughly to: Moldavia was not my ancestors’, was not mine and is not yours, but belongs to our descendants and our descendants’ descendant to the end o time ).

We can now say, during our times  “Earth was not my ancestors’, was not mine and is not yours, but belongs to our descendants and our descendants’ descendant to the end o time“.  Are we living our lives believing this or we are selfish enough to say the contrary?
