Les Sabots by François Boucher, 1768 (detail)
I wanted to show that men and women can be friends without having a relationship,” says del Toro of the relationship between the two main characters Mako (played by Japanese actress Rinko Kikuchi) and Raleigh (“Sons of Anarchy” star Charlie Hunnam). “Theirs is a story about partnership, equality and a strong bond between partners. It’s important for little girls to know not every story has to be a love story and for boys to know that soldiers aren’t the only ones to triumph in war.
Guillermo del Toro (via petitedeath)
I adore Guillermo del Toro, and this relationship was one of my favourites in any recent film. ♥
