This review is from: Pan's Labyrinth (2 Disc Set)  [DVD] (DVD)
I finally managed to rent this film a little while ago following it being out every other time I had tried, and I can finally say, I'm so very glad. The whole film is like sharing a dark secret. You are welcomed into Ofelia's world, allowed to share the magical yarn you see unwinding before your very eyes. The actors play their parts perfectly, all the while giving you the idea that you are being allowed a glimpse of things you shouldn't really be seeing. Even when the film is at is most bloody and violent is still a beautiful thing to watch. From beginning to end you are hooked by this dark fairytale. One of the best films I have seen, not only this year, but ever.
