Pan's Labyrinth...


Last night Stuart and I went to see Guillermo Del Toro's Pan's Labyrinth at the Camden Odeon. We'd been meaning to see it for a while.

Set in 1940s Spain during the violent aftermath of the Spanish Civil War Pan's Labyrinth is the story of Ofelia, a bookish and imaginative 11-year-old girl who moves with her sickly pregnant mother to live with her new father, a brutal fascist Army captain. In an attempt to retreat from this grim reality, she enters a lush fantasy world that might only exist in her own head, where she meets a wizened, half-man, half-goat creature named Pan. Here, she's given a chance to escape forever, but first has to perform three dangerous tasks. And the story soon takes a disturbing turn. Be warned though: I flinched at some of the more graphic scenes.

Bit of a must-see film though.
