SYNOPSIS

'Ofelia, a young girl enchanted by fairy tales, moves in with her sadistic stepfather, a captain for the Spanish army, as her mother enters the final months of pregnancy. One night, a fairy guides her through a labyrinth to meet a faun, who tells her she is a princess. However, before she is allowed into their alternative world, she must pass 3 gruelling tests to prove herself worthy. Pan's Labyrinth is a fairy tale like no other; bleak, ruthless and violent, but mesmerising, magical and extraordinary all the same. It is a dark masterpiece, where death lurks around every corner and where innocence collides with horror, corruption and violence. The historical drama subplot of the film complements the fantasy as they seamlessly weave in and out of each other, giving the magical elements an incredibly, and sometimes disturbingly, realistic dimension.'
