Guillermo del Toro’s fantasy thriller works at two levels that meld into one. In this world, it is set in 1944. The Allies have invaded Nazi-held Europe and in Spain the surviving Republicans are fighting on, hoping for aid in their struggle. A troop of Franco’s soldiers are sent to a remote forest to flush out the rebels. They are led by Captain Vidal (Sergi L�pez), a murdering sadist. With him are his new wife Carmen (Ariadna Gil) and her daughter from a previous marriage, 11-year-old Ofelia (Ivana Baquero). Once in the forest, felia is drawn into Pan’s Labyrinth, a magical world of mythical beings where a faun (Doug Jones) sets her three tasks to be crowned as princess of this strange kingdom.
