Convinced by faun, Pan, that she is the lost princess of a magical kingdom, young Ofelia must complete a series of dangerous tasks to prove her true identity. A dark allegorical take on the horrors of the Spanish civil war, Guillermo del Toro's acclaimed PAN'S LABYRINTH has been attributed to popularising the Spanish genre film in the 21st century.
