It might not seem appropriate to discuss death and fascism in a fantasy cartoon for adults who are children of all ages. Carlo Collodi’s timeless fable, however, is transformed into a Mussolini-era parable about a “lethal form of control and paternity” by Mexican master Guillermo del Toro, whose 2017 masterwork The Shape of Water won the Oscar for best picture. The Devil’s Backbone and Pan’s Labyrinth director Del Toro and co-director Mark Gustafson, whose credits also include Fantastic Mr. Fox, create a tale of war and childhood that nods its wooden head towards Mary Shelley while thematically sitting alongside Del Toro’s Spanish-language masterpieces The Devil’s Backbone and Pan’s Labyrinth. Del Toro and co-writer Patrick McHale reframe Collodi’s source during the interwar years of the 20th century. Carlo, a cherished son, was lost during the Great War by Carpenter Geppetto. He chops down the tree next to Carlo’s grave one night because he is so overcome with sadness, and he makes a crude puppet to stand in for his lost child.
