Spain, 1944. Officially, the Civil War has been over for five years, but a small group of rebels fights on in the northern mountains of Navarra. Dreamy 10-year-old Ofelia and her pregnant mother Carmen move to Navarra, joining her new stepfather, Captain Vidal. A Fascist officer, he is under orders to destroy the rebels. Ofelia discovers an overgrown, tumbledown labyrinth and meets an ancient faun who claims to know her true identity and secret destiny. She can learn them if she completes three tasks before the full moon. But no one must know: not her ailing mother or her new friend Mercedes. Time is running out, and both Ofelia and the rebels will have to battle hardship and cruelty in order to gain their freedom. Who can be trusted in a time of lies and danger? Is the faun telling the truth ...? If not, who is?

Pan's labyrinth El laberinto del fauno by Guillermo del Toro ( Visual )

Visually stunning and brimming with endearingly warm characters, Pan's Labyrinth tells the beautiful tale of an imaginative 10-year-old and her incredible ability to escape reality using her mind. In a similar tradition to The Chronicles of Narnia and The Labyrinth, yet with significantly more emphasis on the gothic/horror aesthetic, the film takes us to a place of dark imagery and dangerous fantasy, similar to worlds created by the master of the macabre, Tim Burton. We've all sat at the window, staring and dreaming of a mythical world of wonderful, sometimes menacing creatures. Pan's Labyrinth, with its lifelike costumes and unbelievable characters, takes us as close as many of us will ever go. Set in Spain in 1944, 10-year-old Ophelia moves with her pregnant mother Carmen, to the province of Navarra to meet her new stepfather, the Fascist officer Captain Vidal. In a world torn apart by war, the only escape for a 10-year-old girl is her imagination. Ophelia stumbles across a stone labyrinth in the garden of her new estate, which is presided over by the faun Pan. Pan convinces Ophelia she is the lost queen of this land, and in order to regain her throne she must complete three dangerous tasks before the next full moon. While Ophelia struggles to regain her rightful place in Pan's Labyrinth, the political struggle in Spain rages on, and the world in Ophelia's imagination comes closer to the brutal and bloody reality she is trying to escape
