Product Details


Product Description

Le réalisateur acclamé Guillermo del Toro (Blade II, Hellboy) présente "l'une des fables pour adultes les plus palpitantes et visuellement saissantes depuis les films du Seigneur des Anneaux " (Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper). A la suite d'une guerre civile sanglante, la jeune Ofelia pénètre dans un univers de cruauté inouïe quand elle emménage avec son nouveau beau-père, un officier militaire tyrannique. Avec son imagination pour seule arme, Ofelia découvre un labyrinthe mystérieux et rencontre un faune qui lui montre la voie de son propre salut et de celui de sa mère souffrante. Bientôt, la frontière entre la réalité et l'imaginaire commence à s'estomper et, avant qu'Ofelia puisse rebrousser chemin, elle se retrouve au coeur de la bataille féroce entre le Bien et le Mal.

5.0 out of 5 stars A tale Grimm March 27 2007
By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
If anyone wants to know where the dark, creepy fairy tales of old went, here's a hint: Guillermo del Toro is doing a pretty good job with the fairy tales for adults.

"Pan's Labyrinth" ("El Laberinto del Fauno") is a sequel of sorts to "The Devil's Backbone," a magical realism film about the Spanish Civil War. But this movie takes us deeper into a world that is half real, half ominous fairy tale, with a unique and imaginative story and some really excellent acting -- in short, a triumph.

Time and place: 1944, Spain. Ofelia (Ivana Baquero) and her very pregnant mother travel to meet her new stepfather, the brutal and murderous Captain Vidal (Sergi López). Ofelia loathes her new stepfather, but is transfixed by the eerie forests around them -- and one night she is visited by a fairy, and encounters a giant faun who tells her that she is Princess Moanna of the netherworld, and must return there.

To do so, he tells her that she must do three things, and gives her a strange book. Ofelia menages first task, but is frightened out of her wits by the second task, which involves a hideous monster with eyes in its hands. Even worse, her mother's pregnancy is getting more dangerous. As the guerillas and the fascists clash, Ofelia faces being trapped outside the netherworld forever...

Fairy tales have become cleaned-up and cutesy over time, so that children can read them without nightmares. But del Toro knows that the best fairy tales are the eerie, bizarre ones for adults, that are connected somehow to the real world. That is what makes "Pan's Labyrinth" so brilliantly dark and heartfelt.

Del Toro obviously crafted this with care, directing it in a dreamlike style and brilliant visuals.

5.0 out of 5 stars A stunning reminder of the harshness of childhood June 25 2007
By Jenny J.J.I. TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
This movie is not at all for children or those who dislike major violence. Of all the movies that Guillermo del Toro has made I'm guessing this is the personal one for him. I heard him saying on TV that when he was a kid he'd imagine the floor to his bedroom opening up and a creature coming out and having a conversation with him. That's pretty much what Ofelia goes through in this movie as she resorts to a fantasy world where strange creatures send her on a magical journey to regain her royal title. A very simple fairy tale told by one of our greatest filmmakers.
While the movie closely follows Ofelia's tasks, spoken to her by a magic book from Pan, it is mostly about the war, double agents (Maribel Verdú and Álex Angulo), and the Captain's near-obsession with his expected son. The battles are extremely brutal and made me queazy a couple of times. So brutal are these deaths, in fact, that you'll be relieved to see a simple shot to the head or back.

The acting is top-notch, and I like to say that young Ivana Baquero has a huge and brilliant future ahead of her. One of the great aspects to the movie is how much scarier the people in the real world are than any strange creature from another fantasy world and none do it better than Sergi Lopez who plays the evil Capitan. He does a great job of playing in a suave sophisticated way that rivals that great job that Ralph Fiennes did with his character in "Schindler's List". He's pure evil packaged in clean cut way and doesn't have the slightest hesitation to killing anyone. It's really interesting that in a movie filled with strange creatures like a giant toad and a pale man with no eyes, the most frightening person would be a regular man with no conscious.
