Not what I was expecting. I thought the story line would've been something else. Graphics are good. Few scenes were creepy.
One of my most favorite movies!
My boyfriend showed this movie to me and I loved every bit of it! I love the little girl and how she has to complete the story and complete all those different adventures. It is so interesting and intriging to watch! And a few parts made me jump.
The film is set in 1944, in fascist Spain. It follows a young girl named Ofelia who tries to escape the horror of her natural world and stepfather, by using her imagination and her love for fairy-tales. After meeting a fairy, she is brought to a faun in the centre of a labyrinth. The film shows the ability of children to overcome harsh realities, such as Ofelia’s, through the power of imagination and fantasy. Not only has the film contributed an incredible story-line, but it has provided the viewers a feast for their eyes. The set design, costume design, make-up, color palettes and lighting are exquisitely used to enhance the plot.
Guillermo Del Torro (the director) is beyond brilliant in his execution of this film. It is stunning, raw, whimsical, disturbing, and beautiful. I would recommend this to anyone! I think everyone should see it! Even if you're not into fantasy movies (which I am usually not into), I Loved it!
