Pan’s Labyrinth is one of the greatest of all fantasy films even though it is anchored firmly in the reality of war. An 11 year old witnesses her new stepfather, a sadistic captain in General Franco’s army, hunting down Republican guerrillas refusing to give up the fight, and is drawn into Pan’s labyrinth, a magical world of mystical beings.
Directed by Guillermo del Toro (The Shape of Water)
