PAN’S LABYRINTH (EL LABERINTO DEL FAUNO)

b0228988_2036612

Set against the backdrop of the a post-Civil War Spain, PAN’S LABYRINTH is a visually stunning Spanish-language fairy tale with a dark heart. In 1944, a young girl named Ofelia avoids a bleak home life–including an ill, pregnant mother and a new, murderous military step-father–by retreating into an imaginative world of fairies and monsters. After ignoring a warning against entering the mysterious labyrinth near her new home, Ofelia meets a faun who sends her off on a wonderfully eerie journey. According to the faun, Ofelia must complete three tasks to resume her position as the long-lost Princess Moanna, a seemingly perfect offer in contrast with Ofelia’s grim waking life. When tragedy strikes and Ofelia finds her way deeper into a dark fantasy world, del Toro’s mesmerizing production and a haunting score by Javier Navarette take over, culminating in an unforgettable conclusion.

Año 1944, posguerra española. Ofelia (Ivana Baquero) y su madre, Carmen (Ariadna Gil), que se encuentra en avanzado estado de gestación, se trasladan a un pequeño pueblo al que ha sido destinado el nuevo marido de Carmen, Vidal (Sergi López), un cruel capitán del ejército franquista por el que la niña no siente ningún afecto. La misión de Vidal es acabar con los últimos miembros de la resistencia republicana que permanecen escondidos en los montes de la zona. Otros personajes son: Mercedes (Maribel Verdú), el ama de llaves, y el médico (Álex Angulo) que se hará cargo del delicado estado de salud de Carmen. Una noche, Ofelia descubre las ruinas de un laberinto, y allí se encuentra con un fauno (Doug Jones), una extraña criatura que le hace una sorprendente revelación: ella es en realidad una princesa, la última de su estirpe, y los suyos la esperan desde hace mucho tiempo. Para poder regresar a su mágico reino, la niña deberá enfrentarse a tres pruebas.

Directed by Guillermo del Toro, Spain, 118 min. HD Digital. In Spanish with English subtitles.

THE DEVIL’S BACKBONE (EL ESPINAZO DEL DIABLO)

715DaAj7jKL._SL1500_

Violent young boys and desperate adults alike harbor secrets in THE DEVIL’S BACKBONE, a Spanish drama-horror set in an overcrowded (and possibly haunted) Spanish orphanage in 1939. Young Carlos, the orphanages’ newest arrival, struggles to fit in at a strange place where hope and dread are signified in turn by a stash of hidden gold and an undetonated Spanish Civil War bomb in the courtyard. Soon Carlos strikes up an unexpected friendship with a bully named Jaime, and is visited by a ghostly apparition who warns him of the deaths of many. A sprawling cast of characters, including administrators with hidden relationships and boys with ill intentions, makes for a pastiche of dark emotion and visual lyricism, all of which turns horrific when the story of a missing boy named Santi comes to light.
