Fascinating

by Abey on 7/16/2011

The story revolves around a little girl and her life. It is a movie that is brilliantly put together. Some of the fantasy characters are scary, but in a larger scale the movie is beautiful. The special effects are great and the characters awesome.This movie is a must watch.

Product Overview

From Guillermo Del Toro, director of Devils' Backbone, Blade 2, and Hellboy. Pan's Labyrinth is a fanciful and chilling story set against the backdrop of a fascist regime in 1944 rural Spain. The film centers on Ofelia, a lonely and dreamy child living with her mother and adoptive father; a military officer tasked with riding the area of rebels. In her loneliness, Ofelia creates a world filled with fantastical creatures and secret destinies. With post-war repression at its height, Ofelia must come to terms with her through a fable of her own creation. This film is on more than 100 top ten lists and was recently named Best Picture of 2006 by the National Society of Film Critics.

Review One of the most anticipated releases of the 2006 holiday season is the latest offering from Mexican director Guillermo del Toro, whose previous credits include The Devil's Backbone, Blade 2, and Hellboy. With Pan's Labyrinth, del Toro opens a landscape where gothic fantasy elements are infused into the real-life horrors of the second World War...The term "fairy tale" can be used to describe Pan's Labyrinth, and references to The Wizard of Oz are not out of place. However, these should not go along with the expectation that this is a kid-friendly movie, because it is not. It contains scenes of graphic violence and images that will cause all but the most stalwart children to have nightmares...However, the lack of family friendliness does not diminish what del Toro has achieved with this magical motion picture.

Review With Pan's Labyrinth, Mexican filmmaker Guillermo Del Toro has created a kind of companion piece to his excellent and eerie 2001 ghost story, The Devil's Backbone. It's a fairytale itself, and also a terrifying story of a child caught in circumstances beyond her control. And for Del Toro, it's simply a glorious achievement, an irresistible and affecting mixture of horror, fantasy, history, and drama...Lately, Del Toro has been working more in Hollywood, helming Blade II and Hellboy. He will soon be back behind the camera to shoot Hellboy 2, and he has a whole slate of projects that he's involved with, including an adaptation of Roald Dahl's The Witches. It's so excellent that he took a break from that commercial work to make this obviously personal movie. His deep connection to the film touches every frame; it's a labor of love that marks the finest film of his career to date, and one of the very finest movies of 2006.

A.O. Scott, The New York Times ...swift and accessible entertainment, blunt in its power and exquisite in its effects.
J. Hoberman, The Village Voice Literally and figuratively marvelous, a rich, daring mix of fantasy and politics.
Jack Mathews, New York Daily News A critic trots out the word "masterpiece" at his own peril, but there it is.
Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal ...a fairy tale for adults that is violent, sometimes shocking, yet utterly engrossing.
Liam Lacey, The Globe and Mail ...like no movie you've seen before, a haunting mixture of horror, history and fantasy...
Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly On the same altar of high fantasy as The Lord of the Rings trilogy.
Michael Wilmington, Chicago Tribune A brilliant work of the imagination capable of truly seizing and igniting our fantasies.
Stephen King, Entertainment Weekly The best film of the year.
