Print
During the Spanish Civil War, young Carlos is abandoned at a completely isolated orphanage. The tensions therein have been building for years, exacerbated by the unexploded bomb resting menacingly in the courtyard. Bullies scheme, tempers flare, and a ghost that visits Carlos's bed seems to be the key to it all.

The Spanish Civil War was used as a backdrop to this story and the stage is an orphanage run by an older couple. It is a 'ghost story', and there are scenes that are reasonably scary. But you don't jump out of your seat. The story was told in a subdued, poetic fashion and the cast of children was well selected and they all acted well. Just a very well executed film by Mexican director Guillermo del Toro. Spanish with subtitles.

Fabulous movie! Great storytelling and acting by the entire cast, especially the child actors. Del Toro describes this as a fairy tale, and it certainly has that quality to it, though it is definitely a fairy tale for adults. Two thumbs up!!

If you're a fan of Pan's Labyrinth, this movie is one of the director's first project. If you're afraid of ghost, you wouldn't be after watching this. I'm not afraid of ghosts.
