Should have won the best foreign film at the Oscars,
This review is from: Pan's Labyrinth (2 Disc Set)  [DVD] (DVD)
This is one of the best films I have seen. It enthralls you from the first to the last minute of this brilliant film. Guillermo Del Toro creates a fantastic fantasy faile of a movie that is designed for adults. The story follows a girl Ofelia who is in her own little world needing support from the Faun who lives in a Labyrinth, because her pregnant widow Carmen is married to a nasty military officer who would do anything to get what he wants even murder people. Is Ofelia imagining the Faun and do gruelling tasks for help or is it real? And will it be happily ever after for Ofelia? This is one of the best, if not the best fantasy film ever, truly a fairy tale for adults. Buy this now.
