Pan's Labyrinth (El Laberinto del Fauno) DVD - Criterion Collection 2 disc set - 2006 film directed by Guillermo del Toro. In this award-winning film - in the fascist Spain of 1944, the bookish young stepdaughter of a sadistic army officer escapes into an eerie but captivating fantasy world. This incredible film is the story about a young girl and the fantasy world she created, to survive the harsh reality she faced. This movie teaches us how children survive the real world, which they are not prepared for, and how adults have forgotten this ability, disregard it as nothing, missing its 'power'. Visually stunning and original, this film will stay with you long after it has ended. Stars Ariadna Gil, Sergi López, Maribel Verdí­ and Ivana Baquero. Rated R for graphic violence and some language, 112 minutes. Spanish audio and optional subtitles in Spanish or English.
