Format: DVD
The Orphanage, does bring sophistication in ghost stories which is rarely heard of, but Guillermo Del Toro manages to pull it off time and time again, and somehow he even managed to inject his magic into this one, which he only produced - as this very much plays out like one of his own films. Not to discredit Mr. Bayona, though, for he has done a fine job. This is a dark, powerful, and moving masterpiece that both adheres to convention and brings some new, more artistic elements to the table in the direction and storytelling.

There was nothing about this film I didn't like. The acting, the thrills, the cinematography, the story, and the atmosphere. Everything was not short of sheer brilliance. The chilling moments freaked me out a couple of times, which I'm glad they did. That was what I wanted out of this film, but I was offered so much in return. Since I knew Guillermo Del Toro was involved with this project, I had a feeling it would be good. I just didn't think it would be THIS good. It was also very heart-warming, which was something I did not expect.

The acting is great, Belen Rueda as Laura is magnificent. Fernando Cayo as the husband Carlos is also good; he looks like a Spanish version of Josh Lucas. The kids do a decent job. And seeing Geraldine Chaplin (Charlie Chaplin's daughter) was a surprise, and she delivered an excellent performance as the 'seeing' medium. The bond that Laura, Simon, and Carlos shared is very sensitive and is carried out well throughout the movie.

This is definitely one of those horror films you should see more than once. The horror films you see nowadays are weak, not scary, and most of all; not worth your time. This one is WORTH the time. Believe me, his film has absolutely everything you need to know on how to make a well-executed ghost story and more.

5 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Mathieu Lalonde on Oct. 14 2008
Format: DVD
This wonderful ghost story was originaly shot with an aspect ratio of 2.35:1, unfortunately, this dvd (the bilingual canadian edition distributed by Cristal Films) has been transfered at 1.78:1 to fill the screen of your widescreen tv by cutting off the sides of the film.

This results in a few shots where the main character or element in the shot is overly off to the side of the screen in a way that was never inteded by the filmmakers.

Oh and the menues are quite horrible and there almost no special features other than deleted scenes which CANNOT be watched WITHOUT the director's commentary!?!

Shame on you Cristal! How can any professional distributor release anything like this in 2008, I do not know.

So if you still want this film (and I'd recommend it), go for the Blu-ray or order New Line's US edition from amazon.com instead...

The Orphanage is a Spanish movie with English subtitles that starts off with a married couple moving into the orphanage that the woman grew up in. They have an adopted child who has imaginary friends. Once they move there, their child makes friends with another imaginary friend, but this one does not seem imaginary at all. Little by little, their adopted child discovers that he is not their real child and the distance between the child and the stepmother grows further until the child goes missing.

Discover where the child disappears and the dark secrets of the orphanage in this shocking mystery.

I thought that it was a great movie with a fantastic surprise ending. The plot at first glance seemed extremely cliché, but as the film progressed it went away from that. It truly had a great plot and the subtitles didn't seem to bug me at all. This movie is a must watch and I enjoyed it immensely. You definitely don't usually see a lot of horror/thriller movies like this now a days. In my personal opinion this is the best horror/thriller film I've seen that was made past the year 2 000. Overall it was an endearing film with a great plot and well done surprise ending...I would definitely recommend this movie, it's truly a work of art.
