Pan’s Labyrinth

Synopsis

Ofelia, a young girl who moves with her mother, Carmen, into the home of Captain Vidal in an abandoned mill in the middle of dark, dangerous woods. Vidal is leading his team of soldiers against resistance fighters- and he will do whatever is necessary to kill every last one of them. As Vidal bosses around the pregnant Carmen, a flying creature leads Ofelia through a garden labyrinth and into an underground cave ruled by Pan who believes that Ofelia might be the lost princess of this strange yet magical place. To prove she is royalty, Ofelia must complete three tasks, each more difficult and terrifying than the previous one. Meanwhile, Vidal is becoming more and more paranoid, torturing and murdering seemingly at will.

The best of this movie is the atmosphere, the art and the transitions between the scenes. The story is great too, with two stories, the historical and the fantastic, that seems unconnected in a first time but they aren’t. Altough, it’s quite predictable.
