Mural Month continues with Pan’s Labyrinth, Guillermo del Toro’s unforgettable dark fantasy for adults.
The film finds a young girl named Ofelia (Ivana Baquero) traveling with her pregnant mother Carmen (Ariadna Gil) to the Spanish countryside after the Spanish Civil War has ended. Waiting for them there is Carmen’s new husband Vidal (Sergi López), a ruthless nationalist army captain. As Ofelia’s mother becomes more frail from the pregnancy and her new stepfather focuses on stopping a guerilla uprising, Ofelia is left to her imagination, which soon finds her wandering into a mysterious labyrinth inhabited by a faun known as Pan, who is immediately certain upon meeting her that Ofelia is a lost princess from the Underworld.
Considered as del Toro’s masterpiece, Pan’s Labyrinth bewitches with marvelous visuals and an elegant sense of grace.
