In Spanish with English subtitles
Against the backdrop of post-civil war Spain, 11-year old Ofelia trembles in fear of her new step-father, a brutal captain in Franco’s fascist army. She finds a strange refuge in a mystical labyrinth in the forest behind her house. There she meets the faun Pan, who tells her she is a legendary, lost princess and has to accomplish three twisted and dangerous tasks to claim immortality. A triumph of beauty and horror, this remains a high water mark for director Guillermo del Toro.
