Guillermo del Toro’s Pan’s Labyrinth is a film that seamlessly weaves genres together. It’s certainly one of the best movies of 2000. The film is set in 1944, in civil war-torn Spain. It tells the story Ofelia, a twelve-year-old girl who escapes to a fantasy world in order to escape the violence around her. Some images and scenes in the movie will stay with you long after the end: The sinister figure Ofelia is facing, the fearsome pale man and the terrifying reality Ofelia’s stepfather Capitan Vidal, Sergi Lopez, who rules over both his family and men, are all memorable.
