Innocence Has A Power Evil Cannot Imagine.

Pan's Labyrinth is the story of a young girl that travels with her mother and adoptive father to a rural area up North in Spain, 1944 - after Franco's victory. The girl lives in an imaginary world of her own creation and faces the real world with much chagrin. Post-war Fascist repression is at its height in rural Spain and the girl must come to terms with that through a fable of her own.

     Beautifully Dark

    | | See all OCProductions's reviews (11)

    Truly inspirational are two words I can think of to describe this film. Its rare these days to find a film this wonderfully smart and magical. This is a true triumph for director Guillermo Del Toro, who hasn't really shown his talent since The Devil's Backbone. Pan's Labyrinth is a sweet but surprisingly violent tale; the violence however is necessary to the look and feel to the film. Casting is perfect, the makeup of the creatures is very impressive and special effects are not relied upon too much so you never feel like anything is false. If you feel like going on an exciting and magical journey any time soon buy it - but make sure you get the two disc set so you can watch all the great special features.

     Maybe the most important Spanish film ever made.

    'Pan's Labyrinth' tells the tale of post-war Spain in 1944. A young and imaginative girl, Ofelia travels with her pregnant and sick mother Carmen Vidal to the country to meet and live with her stepfather, the sadistic and cruel Captain Vidal, in an old mill. During the night, Ofelia meets a fairy and together they go to a pit in the centre of a maze where they meet a faun that tells that she is a princess from a kingdom in the underground.

    The film is very much an adult fairly tale, filled with violence, misjudgement, pressure and bleak surroundings, it's not really a film for children. 'Pan's Labyrinth' takes a new and daring spin on the common outlook of a children's film narrative and packs a punch through the heart of it.
    With gorgeous cinematography, incredible set design and just wonderful costumes, this film is a real treat for even the most narrow-minded film viewer. Guillermo Del Toro has captured something that's almost impossible to grasp, his direction of this film has stamped Spanish cinema with a degree of excellence.
    The character-viewer bond in this film is much higher than in any other foreign language picture. The audience really feels for Ofelia and Pan, along with waitress Mercedes.
    This film gives modern cinema a breath of fresh air, nothing has ever been made quite like this and nothing will ever be as good as this either. True passion and craftsmanship went into the production of this film, something that not all directors endure. Del Toro is famous for magnificent character design such as Hellboy and his latest task, The Hobbit, but in this film, his twisted mind has made beauty from the beast.

    'Pan's Labyrinth' is not only a great film in every single way possible but also it's so important. This film shows hope in the new direction of European cinema, we're finally taking a step away from the horrid CGI-covered Hollywood dribble and inventing our own source of entertainment, and this film is the starting point.

    It's gloomy, dark, morbid, earth-shattering, well written, fantastically directed, brilliantly acted and just totally essential.
    'Pan's Labyrinth' will be the film to change your perception on cinema, the film to bring tears to your eyes and hope to your heart, the film that will just blow you away.

    I advise everyone to at least see this film, if not own it. Even if you cannot stand subtitles, just give this film a go, you won't be disappointed.

     Understandably a masterpiece- but more drama than fantasy?

    I watched this film full of anticipation, and it did blow me away- what an inventive, brilliant movie! Something of this originality and genre is one of the rarest I have witnessed by far. The true ongoing story of the Spanish 'Maquis' nearing the end of WW2 mixed with Ofelio's quest in a magical world doesnt blend, has stark differences and is told beautifully from both angles. I do, however, believe this is in the majority an adult drama, followed then by an adult fantasy. Unmissable for all movie fans.

     A Unique and Beautiful Film.

    Having heard a lot of praise about the movie, I was excited about watching it.
    But having seen a few random clips on TV, watching the movie seemed like it was going to be hard work.
    But 15 minutes into the movie, I was completely Intrigued and Captivated at what was been laid out.
    The Story and the Backdrop of the Story are compelling. The story Twist and Turns, with sharp does of Gothic Style.
    The film is pretty much a Fairytale for Grown Ups. And a very very good one at that.
    The Acting is absolutely Perfect. Especially the little girl.
    The Direction is Stupendous. Once you have sat through the movie, you then understand where all the plaudits are coming from.
    Highly recommended.

     Breathtaking, beautiful and disturbing. Un-missable!

    Whilst the spanish audio and subtitles may put some people off, for those who are not put off this is quite possibly the most beautiful, brutal, moving and arresting film I've seen in years. Absolutely breathtaking in execution and plot. Awe-inspiring and disturbing at a turn. Simply put: Un-missable. Truly a work of art. Buy this film!
