    ACHIEVEMENT IN ART DIRECTION ACHIEVEMENT IN CINEMATOGRAPHY ACHIEVEMENT IN MAKEUP "Pan's Labyrinth" is the story of a young girl who travels with her pregnant mother to live with her mother's new husband in a rural area up North in Spain, 1944, after Franco's victory. The girl lives in an imaginary world of her own creation and faces the real world with much chagrin. Post-war Fascist repression is at its height in rural Spain and the girl must come to terms with that through a fable of her own. The special effects and the performances, especially by Sergi Lopez as Captain Vidal, are increbbly fantastic. A bit violent but well worth seeing..

    It's like Alice in Wonderland for adults... or really, just an adult fairytale. Takes place during the Spanish Civil War, but focuses on a little girl who struggles between her own reality and everyone else's. P.S. Please don't ignore this film just 'cause it has subtitles.

    One of the most beautiful films I've seen in years. It's brutal, magical, heart-lifting and heart-breaking and everything a fairytale should be.

    I really liked this movie. Though the title suggests that it might be appropriate for children, please understand that this is NOT a kids' flick. It has some pretty creepy visuals and graphic violence. I love the costume work and story. Can i get a sequel?

    From the artistic and brilliant mind of Guillermo del Toro comes Pan's Labyrinth. I really liked this film for the story alone but the detail in everything is extraordinary. Its the sequel to his other film "The Devil's Backbone". Ivana Baquero gives a stunning performance in this surreal fairey tale that takes place after the Spanish Civil War.
