One of the best films of the 21st century, and it would surely hold its own on an all time list as well. A very dark and adult story of man's inhumanity to man wrapped in the clothing of a gothic fairy tale. Unforgettable.

A spellbinding blend of drama and fantasy, flawlessly written and directed by Gulliermo del Toro. Captivating. Particularly impressive was twelve year old Ivana Baquero as the doe-eyed Ofelia -- my heart went out to her. La película es muy buena! FIVE STARS.

A great fairy tale for adults embedded in the dark reality of Francoist Spain. It's sophisticated because of its simplicity: good versus evil from beginning to end. I absolutely loved it. It's so immersive that I completely forgot I was reading subtitles; it may sound ridiculous, but it takes a great deal to do such a thing. Highly recommended for all adults who still long for the tinest dose of whimsy but with a touch of darkness, too.

This was such a good movie considering all the sad parts Ophelia was such a good actress her lip quivered when she cried for her mom and brother. But Mercedes was Awesome! :D Ophelia got dirty in the tree! (although she tried to hang her dress up ~ FAIL)

Franco's brutal regime is well portrayed in this film. Recommended viewing for a decadent N.American society.

This movie is definitely not for the faint of heart (quite a bit of graphic violence) but it is absolutely beautiful. The story was moving and the visuals were hauntingly gorgeous.

I agree 100% with Delta The film is downright extraordinary. Brutal but beautiful, magical yet earthy, it has a remarkable cast, with standout performances all round. A must see for fantasy fans. Not suitable for young people, graphic violence. Fantasy but yet it's around time of civiral war. Almost 2 stories in one story.

In 1944 fascist Spain, a girl, fascinated with fairy-tales, is sent along with her pregnant mother to live with her new stepfather, a ruthless captain of the Spanish army. During the night, she meets a fairy who takes her to an old faun in the centre of the labyrinth. He tells her she's a princess, but must prove her royalty by surviving three gruesome tasks. If she fails, she will never prove herself to be the the true princess and will never see her real father, the king, again.

Pan: "A long time ago, in the underground realm, where there are no lies or pain, there lived a Princess who dreamed of the human world. She dreamed of blue skies, soft breezes, and sunshine. One day, eluding her keepers, the Princess escaped. Once outside, the brightness blinded her and erased every trace of the past from her memory. She forgot who she was and where she came from. Her body suffered cold, sickness, and pain. Eventually, she died. However, her father, the King, always knew that the Princess' soul would return, perhaps in another body, in another place, at another time. And he would wait for her, until he drew his last breath, until the world stopped turning..."

"Many, many years ago in a sad, faraway land, there was an enormous mountain made of rough, black stone. At sunset, on top of that mountain, a magic rose blossomed every night that made whoever plucked it immortal. But no one dared go near it because its thorns were full of poison. Men talked amongst themselves about their fear of death, and pain, but never about the promise of eternal life. And every day, the rose wilted, unable to bequeath its gift to anyone... forgotten and lost at the top of that cold, dark mountain, forever alone, until the end of time."
