“A terrifying, visually wondrous fairy tale for adults that blends fantasy and gloomy drama into one of the most magical films to come along in years.” – David Germain, Associated Press

 

Spain 1944. Ofelia, a fatherless young girl with an ailing mother, yearns to escape her cruel family life and the oppressive circumstances of Franco’s regime. Desperate for distraction, her wild imagination is fired by the discovery of a neglected and wondrous garden - populated by pagan demigods and mythological creatures - that leads her into a dark fantasy world full of enchantment, intrigue and a possible path to saving herself and her mother. But soon, the lines between fantasy and reality begin to blur, and before Ofelia can turn back, she finds herself at the center of a ferocious battle between good and evil. In Pan’s Labyrinth, iconoclastic filmmaker Guillermo Del Toro (The Devil’s Backbone, Hellboy) has created a sometimes moving and often terrifying child’s-eye view of the world (something of a dark cousin to The Wizard of Oz) that also works as a profound political allegory, filled with a truly imaginative menagerie of strange creatures and a real sense of fairy tale wonder. (Dir. by Guillermo del Toro, 2006, Spain, in Spanish with subtitles, 118 min., Rated R) HD Digital
