Poster for Guillermo del Toro's Pans Labyrinthdeadmanwalkin
Director Guillermo del Toro recently had this to say about this film:
"PAN’S LABYRINTH will serve as a counterpart to THE DEVIL’S BACKBONE. It’s a full-on fairy tale gone wrong. My script is very much in the mold of CRONOS and DEVIL’S BACKBONE, and will be done without any commercial aspirations. It’s going to be very scary, set against the fascist regime of Spain."
"Pan's Labyrinth" is the story of a young girl that travels with her mother and adoptive father to a rural area up North in Spain, 1944. After Franco´s victory. The girl lives in an imaginary world of her own creation and faces the real world with much chagrin. Post-war Fascist repression is at its height in rural Spain and the girl must come to terms with that through a fable of her own.
