This review is from: Pan's Labyrinth [DVD]  (DVD)
Let me start by saying that this film is quite possibly one of the best films I have seen in a long time, and if you haven't watched it yet then where have you been?
From the off set we are transported into a little girls mind during WW2 Spain. With a heavily pregnant mother and an evil stepfather the girl escapes into the pages of her treasured fairy tales.
With the promise of becoming a princess and escaping her tragic life, the girl embarks on her fairy tale adventures, some of which you may remember from your own childhood.
I don't want to give too much away, as ruining this film for even one individual would be unforgivable, and of course we have all read the synopsis.
All I can say is that this is a truly touching tale, with amazing acting and sensational visuals. If you haven't already seen this film then I suggest you buy it now.
Were the asking price doubled it would still be worth every penny.
