As part of our Enchanted Screen season celebrating folklore and fairytale in film, we’re bringing Guillermo del Toro’s darkly beautiful Pan’s Labyrinth to our weekly Discover Tuesday’s slot on 28 November. Furthermore, our friends at Hop House 13 will be providing a free beer to everyone who buys a ticket. And with tickets at £5 for Members (£8 for non-Members), that’s an offer you can’t refuse!
Pan’s Labyrinth (15)
Director: Guillermo del Toro.
Starring: Sergi López, Ariadna Gil, Ivana Baquero, Doug Jones, Maribel Verdú.
Mexico/Spain/USA 2006. 120 mins. Spanish with English subtitles.
A fairy tale for adults inspired by the paintings of Francisco Goya and rooted, like THE DEVIL’S BACKBONE, in the context of war, this is del Toro’s most accomplished work in his own opinion. In 1940s Spain, recently remarried Carmen (Gil) and daughter Ofelia (Baquero) move in with the cold and authoritarian new husband, Vidal (López), a captain in General Franco’s army. Finding her new life difficult, Ofelia seeks refuge in a labyrinth she discovers next to the house. A magical creature named Pan, the guardian of the labyrinth, reveals that Ofelia is the long-lost princess of a magical kingdom. To discover the truth, she will have to accomplish three dangerous tasks. Del Toro’s startling vision rests on a profoundly moving story with universal appeal.
