Pan's Labyrinth



I watched Pan't Labyrinth this evening and am still reeling. The soundtrack is haunting as is the story. I love the lullaby:



Make no mistake, though a child is the protagonist this is not a children's movie. It is rated R for a reason.

The theme is dark but in the end not rooted in despair but quite its opposite. I can't say much more without giving mega spoilers.

I may have to watch it again before I send it back to Netflix. It's spoken language is Spanish and I had to keep my eye on the English subtitles and quite frequently pause in order to finish reading or backtrack to see something in the scene I missed.

I wish my two years of high school Spanish had weathered better so I could enjoy this story as it's creator intended.

I watched this about a year ago, and I still think it's memorable. You've reminded me to add it to the list of movies I want to own!

Oh my gosh this is one of my all time favorite movies. An all time classic in my oppinion. My whole family thinks I'm crazy, but I rent it all the time. I wish I could watch it everyday!
