El Laberinto del Fauno (Pan's Labyrinth) (2006)

In the fascist Spain of 1944, Ofelia, the young stepdaughter of a ruthless army officer, Captain Vidal, escapes into an eerie but captivating fantasy world.

This is one dark fairy tale, and isn't suitable for children due to a few violent scenes. Killing without mercy, crushing one's face with a glass bottle, stabbing and slicing one's lips with a knife, wow... I certainly didn't expect such scenes from this film. Overall, it would keep you glued to the screen.

Rating: 1.5/5.
