Le Labyrinthe de Pan
El laberinto del fauno

Spain, Mexico

Running time


A few years after the Spanish Civil War, a woman decides to move with her daughter to stay with her second husband, a particularly authoritative captain in Franco's army. Uncomfortable in her new surroundings, the young girl one day finds a labyrinth near her new home, where she meets a creature who guards this secret place and tells her she is the missing princess of an enchanted realm. To discover more, she must complete three dangerous tasks. Fairy tale that incongruously mixes fantasy with the the history of the Spanish Civil War. By Mexican director Guillermo del Toro.
