Pan's Labyrinth

El Laberinto del Fauno
+ Long, Long Time Ago (Hace Mucho, Mucho Tiempo) mp3

Yesterday, after work, I escaped to an enchanted world of Fauns, Faeiries, and Franco. The music alone is worth the price of admission, what with it's ethereal atmospheric rise and falls, the film score by Javier Navarrete plays almost like an additional cast member on the screen. This film delivers. I found myself completely enchanted with Ofelia's quests and the plight of her very pregnant mother in the midst of the Spanish Civil War.
