Has anyone seen this "adult fairytale"? As I sit here typing this post I am listening to the hauntingly beautiful sound track. Pans Labyrinth is a Spanish film with English subtitles. Don't be scared away because of the subtitles; the words hang around on the screen longer than most sub-titled movies, which I watch frequently. This Oscar winning movie is pure delight. It is the first movie that I have been absorbed in, in a very long time; watching it at the theatre, buying the video, and rewatching the video over again. There is a director's cut, on the video, where Guillermo Del Toro speaks throughout the video and describes his view on why he directed the movie the way he did. Very entertaining! I would love to hear your stories about the movie. Both negative and positive comments are welcome. Posted below is a sample of the video. Enjoy!
