The Boy Who Made
Shoes for Lizards
A film showing Manolo as a little boy running around the gardens of his hometown in the Canary Islands obsessed with making shoes for the little reptiles out of candy wrappers. One can easily see where Manolo’s love of nature and botany comes from and how they always permeate his designs. There is also a cameo by Rupert Everett, who for a brief moment plays the adult Manolo reminiscing about his childhood. Directed by Michael Roberts.
