(2006) dir Guillermo del Toro w/Ivana Baquero, Sergi Lopez, Maribel Verdu, Doug Jones [118 min; 35mm]
Beautifully illustrating Del Toro's skill as both a dramatic and fantasy filmmaker, PAN'S LABYRINTH spans two worlds the grim reality of the Spanish Civil War and the opulent mystery of an underground fairy realm. This phantasmagoric fairy tale tells the tale of a young girl who finds refuge from the horrors of the war in a fantasy world that may or may not be of her own making.
