PAN’S LABYRINTH (2006) (Spanish)

Hollywood is famous for telling the fantasy tales but now the directors have a tough fight with this new talented Director Guillermo Del Toro because he knows the story telling better than any other talent in recent times. HellBoy I & II are the good examples of it. The best thing about the film is that just like any other Hollywood fantasy film, the special effects didn’t overlap the story & along with tale of fantasy there’s also another story of real world running parallel maintaining the same interest & director has successfully justified it till the end. As he showed the difference between the real world of mortals & the amazing immortal fantasy world in the climax. Its fantasy adventure journey into the world of a little girl Ophelia & the world of labyrinth where she has to complete three tasks before the moon is full. Its wonderfully written & directed film by Toro. The movie is not grand & lofty in visual scale compared to other fantasy tale & sometimes lack the pace but it scores point over its story telling art. The movie is entertainment for all ages. Its winner of 3 academy awards in Best Cinematography, Best Make up & Best Art Direction.
Worth Watch if you love Creative Imagination.

Ratings- 8.5/10
