Why is it so important for Del Toro his Bleak House? This is the place where the filmmaker blows his imagination, because there he writes, he is inspired because he has encyclopedias and books that speak about monsters, fairies, elves and strange beings. In it there are at least 700 pieces including sketches and unique objects of his films.
