Pan's Labyrinth

Spain, 1944, in a fascist regime, at the time of Franco's Resistance, when this fairy tale begins to unravel. A young girl accompanies her mother to a military outpost where her step-father is captain and a most foul man. Soon, she'll follow a strange creature to a labyrinth, where a faun tells her she's not a mere mortal, but in fact the reincarnation of a princess to the Underworld's kingdom.

With magnificent story-telling and a gorgeous cinematography by Guillermo Navarro, you'll hardly forget Guillermo del Toro's movie. The film was nominated for the Golden Palm at Cannes and got a 22 minute ovation from the audience. It's score, an incredible 8.4 on IMBD.

So come this way if you please... Enter the labyrinth...

Just beware: Fairy tales are not always meant for children...
