The film transposes the action to a city full of cars and motorcycles, drugstores and junkyards, radio, televisions and movie carneras.

And the second one his in the oneiric terrain of his invention, created by the fantastic and magical gaze of a filmmaker. What 1 like most about Don Quixote de la Mancha is that Don Quixote traverses the Mancha, the geographical place known to a11, arrives in towns with specific names, but, this Mancha, the concrete place where these are located, the place in which one can almost sme11 the roped mules, and in which we can recognize a11 the characters that mili around in the novel, is nevertheless a place where magical episodes take place.

Tosilos or Dulcinea: Border Crossings in El caballero A very secondary character in the novel, the ambiguous page Tosilos has an impacting intervention in the film. A decidedly postmodern rip-off on the Cervantine text is the casting of Juan Diego Botto as the page who appears disguised as Dulcinea.
He, however, falls in love with the beautiful daughter of Donna Rodriguez and prefers to give up the fight so that he can marry to her. The Tosilos scene in the film refers to an 15 ". Cited in Molina Foix, p At the beginning of the next chapter, it is disclosed that the entire episode had been concocted by the Duke's steward, who acted as Merlin himself, and instructed a page to impersonate Dulcinea.
Tosilos in disguise as Dulcinea is acted by Botto. People think it is a caprice of mine that Dulcinea be played by aman, but no, this in fact was a joke of the dukes and that is how it is in the book.
