Set against the backdrop of the a post-Civil War Spain, Guillermo del Toro’s most personal film is a visually stunning Spanish-language is a dark and magical realist fairy tale. 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. With Guillermo Navarro’s hypnotic cinematography and Javier Navarrete’s haunting musical score makes this a genuine masterpiece that begs to be seen in 35mm in Spanish with English subtitles and on the big screen.

Violent young boys and desperate adults alike harbor secrets in this terrifyingly creepy, Horror-Drama set at the end of the Spanish Civil War and in an overcrowded (and possibly haunted) Spanish orphanage in 1939. A sprawling cast of memorable characters with hidden relationships and ill intentions, makes for a pastiche of dark emotion and visual lyricism, emphasized yet again by Guillermo Navarro’s hypnotic cinematography and Javier Navarrete’s haunting musical score. Do not miss this 35mm presentation in Spanish with English subtitles and on the big screen.
