“Fairy tales are ultimately about two things: facing the dragon or climbing back to our world inside” – Pan Labryinth. So is reality. What are our choices, what do we choose? To live forever comfortable in ignorance or to speak the unspeakable? Choose well.
Set in Spain, 1944. The end of the Civil War. A dictatorship. Brutal killings. Leftist struggles. A young girl seeks refuge in a mysterious labyrinth next to the cold house of her Stepfather, Captain Vidal, who served in Franco’ army. She turns to her dark fantasy to cope with all the evil around her. Pan, the guardian, a magical creature, reveals that Ofelia is none other than the long-lost princess of a magical kingdom. She has to accomplish three dangerous tasks in order to return…will she suceed?
Very often in life we too face such challenges. When we reach the edge of the cliff, what do we do? Jump or learn how to fly.
