Aro Favourite Pan's Labyrinth

 

aka: El Laberinto del fauno
Mexico / Spain 2006, 114 minutes
Dir. Guillermo Del Toro
In Spanish with English subtitles
Rating: [R16]
Genres: Foreign Cinema, Drama / Fantasy, War, Subterranean

 

Aroview: A stunning, sinister netherworld fantasy that parallels an equally compelling story of uprising against a fascist military unit in WWII Spain, this is an "Alice in Wonderland" for grown-ups, told through the eyes of a little girl who has passage into a subterranean world inhabited by nightmarish creatures.

Visionary director Del Toro delivers on his earlier promise in creating a potent, and often violent, battle between good and evil, heroes and villains, in both the real world and the mystical land below, aided by stellar production design, incredible special effects, and a stirring score by Javier Navarrete. Not for the squeamish, though.
