When they question us on why making this work so approachable over the last half century, we reply with a single personal motive: love. This eternal story of Taby Cat and Swallow Sinhá, written by Jorge Amado for his son, is one of the most beautiful offers we know. And is also, one of the most beautiful love story. Which Capuletos and Montéquios, the Cat and the Swallow are doomed to be apart and condened to tragedy only because of the identity as species. An pertinent matter on nowadays, a story written before the days, to show the human/animal behaviour that has no trends nor phases. Love is love, forbidden love is forbidden love, as Shakespeare or the Greecks had spoken.
